Major Professor: Joseph M. Quattro

I am currently working on my PhD in Integrative Biology. My dissertation research utilizes molecular data (microsatellites and mitochondrial DNA sequencing) to detect fisheries induced changes in effective population size and genetic composition of a commercially harvested finfish species (gag grouper, Mycteroperca microlepis).  I hope to utilze these results to model future population dynamics of this stcok and evaluate the efficacy of the current management plan.
