    Research Interests

    My research interests centre on the areas of biodiversity, population genetics, fishery management and aquaculture. I am particularly interested in the development and application of modern genomic methodologies and associated statistical genetics approaches (bioinformatics pipelines), to gain further understanding on population genetic structure, evolutionary patterns and life history variation of organisms. Research emphasis is given to salmonid fish (brown trout and Atlantic salmon) and crustaceans (European lobster) through investigations focusing on management and conservation. Current research topics include: mechanisms of population structure; local adaptation; taxonomy and phylogeography; landscape genetics; genetic diversity, gene flow, genetic tagging; genetic consequences of deliberate/accidental introductions of culture fish on wild populations; genetic stock identification (GSI); identification of QTLs; selective breeding, and the identification and delimitation of conservation and management units.
