Research Interests

My research focuses on environmental DNA (eDNA) methods and CRISPR-based detection technologies, along with UC Davis colleagues and government agency collaborators. We are actively working on CRISPR-based detection of aquatic eDNA for single species as well as multispecies detection of fishes and aquatic invertebrates using eDNA metabarcoding. I am also interested in molecular methods development for conservation genetics and environmental management, including possible future methods using transcriptomics and epigenomics.
