Research Interests

We have a range of research interests within evolutionary genomics. We are using population genomic, transcriptomic and eDNA to approach research questions in Ecology and Evolution. We have specific interests in understanding genomic signatures of sexual conflict, the speciation process, and the evolutionary forces shaping genomic variation both in a fundamental context and within the realm of conservation biology.

Prospective Students

I am always happy to discuss research opportunities with prospective students. I have a wide range of projects available, ranging from summer projects to PhD.
