I am currently working on 3 research projects, all of which involve population and/or evolutionary genetics.
1. My primary project is investigating the population genetics of kelp (a seaweed). This work involves examining the degree to which populations that occur along the west coast of North America are connected through reproduction. I began working on this project in 1996 and it has continued, with many outgrowths and related projects, to current.
2. I am also working on a project that investigates the evolution of particular genes involved in heat stress physiology in Antarctic fish. This project began in 1999 and continues to present.
3. My third project is examining gene expression patterns (which genes turn on and off and when) in marine organisms. This is a new project that began earlier this year and is continuing.
