Current Research

I have been working at the Wildlife Genetics Laboratory since 2002. In that time I have learned to appreciate the key role that molecular genetics can play in the management of rare and sensitive species. I have focused my efforts on obtaining DNA from non-invasive genetic samples and using this DNA to produce individual genotypes. I have been fortunate to work on non-invasive genetic projects with black bears, fishers, marten, Italian wolves, wolverines, and river otters.

Research Interests

The field of wildlife genetics has become a passion for me and this is something I am hoping to continue into the indefinite future.

Past Research

This research is important to the viability of wildlife populations.
