My research is orientated towards the development and application of modern genomic methodologies and bioinformatics pipelines, to gain further understanding on population genetic structuring, evolutionary patterns and life history variation. Research emphasis is given to aquatic organisms (mainly salmonid fish and crustaceans).
Current research includes: local adaptation; taxonomy and phylogeography; landscape genetics; genetic diversity, population connectivity, genetic tagging; genetic consequences of deliberate/accidental introductions of culture fish on wild populations; GSI; identification of QTLs; identification/delimitation of conservation and management units.Find out more
My research group is currently recruiting one (possibly two) PDRAs in bioinformatics (adaptation genomics – wild and farm Atlantic salmon interactions). We are also recruiting two PDRAs to work metagenomics and metabarcoding projects (Food Web Interactions and Molecular methods for Environmental monitoring).
Providing that funding is available I am also open to PhD applications from individuals interested in my area of research interest.
