Personal profile

Research interests

I lead the Landscape Genetics Lab in the School of Natural Sciences. Combined with field-collected spatial and ecological data, I use genomic sequencing approaches to address the effects of environmental change on gene flow and local adaptation in natural populations. In doing so, I examine how environmental conditions affect genetic connectivity and evolutionary processes within species. This may  involve species of conservation concern, or invasive species and pests, across the animal kingdom (e.g. insects, reptiles, birds). Using these approaches, my research evaluates how land-use and climate change affect species' genetic diversity and their adaptive capacity. This information can assist us to manage species of ecological or economic relevance across spatial and temporal scales.
