  • Other Information

    Research Interests

    • Conservation genetics of fish species that are endemic to the Tallapoosa watershed in western Georgia. Specifically, the genetic structure of the Tallappoosa darter (Etheostoma tallapoosae) and the Tallapoosa shiner (Cyprinella gibbsi) populations.
    • Evolution of centromeric protein A (CENP-A) in darters.
    • Utilization of whole genome sequences to explore adaptive variation among Tallapoosa darter populations and closely related darter species.
