Empirical Population Genetics

Along with teaching introductory biology, zoology and evolution at Kwantlen Polytechnic University my work is focused on processes that drive divergence of populations. Specifically, I am interested in how life history variation along with variability in patterns of colonization and dispersal influence population genetic structure.
More recently my research has expanded to applying the concepts and techniques used in evolutionary biology and population genetics to real-world problems, including work on colonization of invasive/non-native species and the evolution of drug resistance in livestock parasites.
