Research Interests

I am interested in using integrative molecular (population, quantitative, and functional) genomic approaches, my research broadly focuses on Evolution, Ecology, Physiology, and Conservation Biology, primarily in aquatic systems. Specifically, my research focuses on three major themes: (1) Animal interactions (genetic & ecological) and coexistence; (2) Genomic/transcriptomic basis of physiological adaptation to changing
environments; and (3) genomics for biodiversity monitoring, assessment, and
conservation. Currently, I am working in a synergistic project with the Genomic
Variation Lab (GVL) and Genetic Monitoring Lab (GeM) at the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) on developing molecular methods to monitor fish species of conservation concern, with an emphasis on using eDNA metabarcoding to infer abundance.
