Liz Mandeville, PI
I am an assistant professor of computational biology in the Department of Integrative Biology at the University of Guelph.
Work in my lab focuses on quantifying and explaining variation in evolutionary processes using high resolution genomic data. Most of my work focuses on freshwater fish facing anthropogenic disturbances, and I often collaborate with state or federal agencies. I also enjoy learning and teaching new computational approaches and programming languages, and am interested in effective visualization of multidimensional scientific data.
Before moving to the University of Guelph, I was 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 where I focused on hybridization among six species of Catostomus fish.
