Transforming biological discovery and education

Our lab at the City University of New York and the Biology Department at York College studies evolutionary genomics in marine, estuarine and freshwater organisms. Our projects range from applied questions in conservation biology to deep phylogenetics, and from microbes to whales. Our primary research interests focus on uncovering the processes that shape biodiversity in marine and freshwater ecosystems, particularly in the context of global change. As fundamental aspects of our work, we strive to broaden participation in the sciences and to develop innovative methods for conservation science.
