Evolutionary genetics; molecular ecology and evolution; natural history; conservation biology; wildlife and fisheries management.
My lab group uses Illumina and 454 sequencing (as well as more conventional molecular markers such as microsatellites) to study otherwise cryptic aspects of biology. For example, we are interested in how selection has shaped genes expressed in sturgeon gonads, in kangaroo rat kidneys, and in salamander gill/lungs. My graduate students work on a variety of questions in ecology and evolution, including conservation issues (e.g., eagle demography).
Our work is funded by a variety of state, regional, and federal agencies. These include the Indiana Department of Transportation/Joint Transportation Research Program, the Great Lakes Fishery Trust, the National Birds of Prey Trust, the USDA, and the National Geographic Society. However, most of our funding has come from the National Science Foundation.
