Research Interests

I am broadly interested in molecular adaptation in fishes.  My research employs genomic approaches toward understanding evolutionary and ecological processes in fishes.  I am particularly interested in the role environmental heterogeneity plays in shaping morphoLethrinuslogical and population genetic characteristics of fishes, both at the local and regional level.  Much of my research relies heavily on comparative functional genomics studies of non-model fishes.  I recently completed my Ph.D. research with Dr. Tom Turner at the University of New Mexico, where I investigated reproductive phenology of cyprinid fishes of New Mexico.  My dissertation research was focused on the genetic mechanisms underpinning differential seasonal reproductive timing in co-occurring minnows (Cyprinidae) and the environmental cues that trigger reproduction.  This research has important implications for predicting the effects of climate change on species using different environmental cues for spawning.  I am currently a postdoc in the Turner Lab, working on a comparative immunogenomics project using transcriptomic and gene expression analyses.
