My research is focused on understanding the origins of biodiversity and finding effective ways to preserve it. To accomplish this, I investigate the ecological and evolutionary forces driving dispersal, gene flow, adaptation, disease susceptibility, and speciation, and apply this knowledge to conservation and management issues. I work on a wide taxonomic range of animals including invertebrates, fish, and mammals, in both marine and terrestrial environments.
