2004- Ph.D., University of California, Davis
Population Genetics, Conservation Biology, Vertebrate Biology
My major interests are in the genetics and biogeography of speciation, symbiosis, and invasion biology. I encourage graduate students to develop their own research questions, which may involve my primary study organisms (salamanders) or not.
