This page is under construction and will be updated throughout Spring 2020.


This page is the home for my materials for the University of Georgia's GENE(ECOL) 4530/6530: Molecular Ecology course, which I am co-instructing with Dr. John Wares and Dr. Natalia Bayona Vásquez in Spring 2020. We'll use eLC to host most of the course's materials, but I'll post what I am able to share publicly here.  

This course is designed to introduce students to the use of molecular markers and models for understanding biodiversity. You can read more about it on the course syllabus

Students: if you have any questions, I'm happy to meet during office hours to help resolve them. More information below:


Office: Environmental Health Science Room 300

Office hours: By appointment.
