The Lotterhos Lab at Northeastern Marine Science Center studies population genetics and evolution, mostly in marine systems but we also collaborate with terrestrial biologists and theoreticians.  We are interested in central problems in marine systems such as the influence of climate on dispersal, recruitment, and local adaptation - but we also study broader problems in molecular ecology such as the inference of loci under selection from genome scans.  A central goal in our research is to understand how populations will respond to environmental change.  To address these pressing issues in biological science, we use a combination of field surveys, experiments, mathematical modeling, genomics, and bioinformatics.
