I am fascinated by the diversity of questions that can be addressed with molecular techniques. Through use of genetic, epigenetic, and microbial sequencing technologies, I am applying an integrative molecular approach to the study of wildlife populations facing disease. I additionally study the genetic effects of urban colonization and range expansion, with prior experience in method development for noninvasive genetic monitoring of carnivore species.
