Research Interests
I am broadly interested in the application of genetics and genomics to understanding how evolutionary and ecological processes shape diversity in wildlife populations, focusing particularly on non-human primates. What started as nascent interests in evolutionary anatomy and natural history led me to molecular systematics and conservation biology, which further developed into phylogeographic and population genetic approaches to reconstructing population history. More recently, my interests have incorporated landscape genetics, immunogenetics, and host-microbe interactions. While these interests vary, they overlap in combining fieldwork, lab work, and computational approaches to generate a better understanding of conservation and health in natural populations.
