Areas of study

My students and I study evolutionary biology, primarily below the species level (molecular ecology, population genetics, conservation genetics). Although my taxonomic expertise is with freshwater invertebrates, graduate students in the lab have studied a wide variety of animals using genetic markers.  Our lab has worked with microsatellites, ISSRs, mtDNA and nDNA genotyping and sequencing, and the current students are now moving into genomics.  Each project focuses on interpreting patterns of genetic variation to 1) determine the relationships among different evolutionary lineages, 2) estimate historical and contemporary connectivity among populations, and 3) make management and conservation recommendations.

opics for graduate study include:

At San Diego State University, the Biology department offers Master's degrees in six areas of Biology, and Doctoral degrees in three areas. I mentor students in both the Evolutionary Biology Program Area and the Ecology Program Area.

Please email me prior to applying, and note the application instructions on the following Biology Department web pages:

The application deadlines and general information on the 4 pages linked from above is more current than the instructions on the University's graduate application web page. Use the above links. Doctoral applications are usually due in December for the following fall. Prospective Master's students are advised to get all application materials submitted by January 31.
