I am an evolutionary geneticist, ecologist, and computational biologist. I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Wyoming, working with Katie Wagner and Annika Walters on genomics of speciation and hybridization in fish. I recently completed a PhD in Alex Buerkle’s labmandeville_cropped_shoulders

I study hybridization, speciation, and species cohesion using computational approaches and genomic data. I use genotyping by sequencing, high performance computing, Unix, Perl, R, and hierarchical Bayesian modeling to better understand evolutionary and ecological interactions between species.
Much of my research has direct applications in fish conservation genomics, and involves collaboration with natural resource agencies at the state and federal level.
