Woods Hole, Massachusetts 02543
United States


PI: NO, PhD Candidate
Taxa Studied: Invertebrate Animals
Techniques Employed: Sanger Sequencing, Solexa (Illumina) Sequencing, Bioinformatics/Sequence Analysis, SNP Mapping, Scanning Electron Microscopy
Research Description: My interests include all aspects of biological evolution in the deep-sea, but especially the molecular ecology of invertebrates from hard-bottom and chemosynthetic habitats. I combine different molecular tools and interdisciplinary field observations to study the diversity, evolutionary history, phylogeography, population genomics and adaptation of widespread deep-sea and cold-water organisms. I also participate in various ocean exploration initiatives and conservation-oriented projects.
