Looking for a post-doctoral position in freshwater genomics and conservation (preferably in the midwest!)


How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
I am a Ph.D. candidate at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign with a focus on genomics in freshwater ecology. I am particularly interested in the intersection of species distribution modeling and conservation genomics for imperiled and invasive species. Through my time at UIUC, I have excelled in the use next-generation sequencing, metabarcoding, and the use of eDNA for conservation actions. As I approach the end of my PhD, I am looking for post-doc opportunities in/around the midwest!

Citizen scientists may provide unique opportunities for surveillance and early detection of management-relevant biological invasions. Here, we report results of a classroom citizen science program that detected the first record of the invasive red swamp crayfish Procambarus clarkii (Girard, 1852) from northern Idaho, United States. Secondary school...
Biological invasions can produce severe ecological impacts at both large spatial scales between distantly related species and also smaller spatial scales between conspecifics. We investigated here a potential intraspecific invasion within Lake Michigan and adjacent waters. Banded killifish (Fundulus diaphanus) experienced population increases and s...

Non-native fishes can cause ecological impacts as invasive species, but identifying which non-native species have harmful impacts is critical to prioritizing management and policy responses. Here, we characterized the state of knowledge on the impacts of a possibly overlooked group of invasive species in the United States: non-game native transplan...

Neonicotinoid insecticides are highly water soluble with relatively long half-lives, which allows them to move into and persist in aquatic ecosystems. However, little is known of the impacts of neonicotinoids on non-target vertebrates, especially at sublethal concentrations. We evaluated the effects of the neonicotinoid clothianidin on the behavior...
The freshwater mussel fauna of the United States, while extraordinarily rich, has the highest imperilment rate of any group of organisms. It is important to understand what factors allow riverine freshwater mussels to persist yet, challenging because of their unique life cycle, benthic habitat preferences, and sensitivity to disturbance across spat...
Understanding the spawning patterns and egg production of clownfish is important for understanding their life history and the factors contributing to population persistence. The egg production and temporal spawning patterns of eight breeding pairs of yellowtail clownfish, Amphiprion clarkii (Bennett, 1830), were observed for a 14- mo period on a co...
