Research in the lab is broadly focused on integrating genomics, ecological data, and computer modeling to address problems in molecular ecology, distributional ecology, conservation, and biodiversity science. Questions about species, their relationships, and their past, present, and future responses (e.g. distributional shifts) to climate change and human impacts are especially of interest. Current projects focus on ecological niche modeling, conservation genomics, evolutionary ecology, phylogeography/phylogenomics, and the genetic architecture of adaptation in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems of North America and the Neotropics.
We are also interested in biological assessment (e.g. biomonitoring, fisheries research) and community ecology of the diverse fish assemblages of Alabama and the southeastern US. We are working with state agencies to develop projects in this applied arena.
We are located in McGee Science Center, in the Science Complex at JSU.
