I am interested in investigating ways that conservation genetics can be applied to management strategies of endangered species. Before attending Iowa State, I worked at the Rocky Mountain Research Station, Wildlife Genetics Lab in Missoula, Montana. During my time in Montana, I helped collect microsatellite data from non-invasively collected Greater sage-grouse feathers for a range-wide landscape genetics project . My current research project involves using genetic data to understand how anthropogenic influences may have altered population structure of an endangered freshwater mussel, the Sheepnose (Plethobasus cyphyus).
