As an evolutionary biologist I am broadly interested in the behavioural and genetic changes leading to species divergence and reproductive isolation. Currently I am investigating the genomic basis of facultative anadromy in brown trout (Salmo trutta) to better understand how alternative life histories arise and persist in populations. I am particularly interested in applying genomic methods to disentangle the effects of demography and selection to identify adaptive loci.
I am now a Research Associate at the Faculty of Science, Animal Ecology, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam
I am an evolutionary biologist interested in the genomic architecture and molecular mechanisms underlying phenotypic plasticity and sexual dimorphism. To explore these aspects, I use a range of molecular, genomic and computational techniques.
I am now a group leader and lecturer at the Institute of Organismic and Molecular Evolution, Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz (JGU).
My Project Title is 'The effects of proximate factors on alternative migratory tactics in brown trout.'
I am now a postdoc at Biological Sciences Department, University of Toronto at Scarborough.
I have a BSc (Hons) in Rural Resource Management, an MSc in Ecology, and a PhD in Invertebrate Ecology entitled; ‘The ecology of north temperate dung beetle communities.
I have a Bachelor of Technology (Honours) Degree in Aquaculture and an MSc in Mariculture Science and Technology. I have worked and been involved in Aquaculture and Marine Biology research for many years. I am a senior technical officer in the School of BEES (UCC) where part of my work is dedicated to research and research support.
I am now a lecturer/Assistant Professor at the School of Biology and Environmental Science, University College Dublin.
