Research Interests

My research focus principally applies population genetic tools towards the conservation and management of freshwater fishes. My work seeks to interpret patterns of genetic variation in natural and reintroduced populations, and spans the disciplines of historical biogeography, life-history ecology, conservation genetics and fisheries management. Much of my work involves collaboration with state, federal and nongovernmental agencies of the middle and southwestern US.
