Areas of Expertise

  • Molecular Ecology
  • Conservation Genetics
  • Evolutionary Biology


  • M.S. University of Michigan (1981)
  • Ph.D. University of Michigan (1988)
  • B.Sc. Queen's University (1980)

Research in my laboratory addresses problems in evolutionary biology, molecular ecology, and conservation genetics through a combination of field work, lab analyses of genetic and protein variation, and statistical modeling of genetic data. Current areas of focus include:

  • Evolution of adaptive variation at the molecular level using snake venom proteins as a model system
  • Evolution and ecology of unisexual vertebrates; see my lab page for more details
  • Conservation genetics of endangered snakes and amphibians
  • Phylogeography and population genetic structure of snakes and birds
