Research Interests

I am interested in how populations change over time in a conservation context. I enjoy collaborating with agency biologists and other researchers using a range of molecular tools to understand and manage threatened and endangered species. Some of these species include California native trout, desert fishes, Delta smelt, and longfin smelt. Among the technologies my students and I use are next generation sequencing, SNP assays, and microsatellites. Please see below for more details on some of my projects.
