I am currently a postdoc at the University of Wyoming, working with Katie Wagner and Annika Walters on genomics of speciation and hybridization in fish (specifically Wyoming trout and Tanganyikan cichlids). I completed a PhD in Alex Buerkle’s lab in 2016.
I study hybridization, speciation, and population genetic structure using computational approaches. I use genomic and ecological data to better understand evolutionary and ecological interactions between species.
Much of my research has direct applications in fish conservation genomics, and involves collaboration with state and federal agencies. I also enjoy learning and teaching new computational approaches and programming languages, and am interested in effective visualization of multidimensional scientific data.
