Research Interests

Co-advised by Peter Moyle and the Center for Watershed Sciences, I am exploring bioinformatic and genomic applications for understanding population and species-level questions related to freshwater fishes. Currently I am working on a number of species including Devils Hole pupfish, California roach, California hitch, and multiple species of freshwater sculpin. In addition to these projects, I am contributing to projects on invasive overbite clams and Black Sea jellyfish in Suisun Marsh and writing an important paper on assessing extinction of freshwater fishes across the world.
