Summary of Research Interests

My research interests are in molecular ecology. In particular, I am interested in collaborative research that will increase our understanding of how ecological factors structure genetic variation within and among natural populations and communities. I use descriptive field work to generate hypotheses that can be tested through experimentation. My research often addresses issues relevant to the management of natural resources. Connecting my research activities to natural resource management provides relevant insight into patterns of population and community genetic structure. This creates unique research opportunities for students at Kennesaw State University as they prepare for the professional environment.
