Research Intereest:

Current projects an analysis of the genetic structure of terrestrial snail, Ventridens ligera, populations in the Potomac River basin to determine if the downstream flow effects genetic diversity of the populations, DNA barcoding of the terrestrial snail genus Stenotrema, and an analysis of the genetic structure of gopher tortoise (Gopherus polyphemus) populations in Florida.
