We are broadly interested in the conservation and evolution of biodiversity. Most of our research is with amphibians and reptiles, but we also work with other taxa. We aim to understand the processes underlying genetic diversity and differentiation, particularly as they relate to recent and historical environmental change, and conservation priorities. Projects apply genomic data, geospatial modeling, statistical genetics, and computational approaches to field-based questions.
