We use approaches from genomics and evolutionary bioinformatics to study freshwater communities and ecosystems; primarily organisms living in streams, rivers, and lakes (aquatic insects, fungi, fish, plankton, and microbes).

We are active in the Center for Genomics in Biodiversity Research where our work includes environmental genomics, DNA metabarcoding, phylogenetics, population genetics, marker development, and RNAseq.


Research funding comes from the following organizations:
