Research Project

My current project entails developing environmental DNA techniques for the detection of imperiled darters (small benthic fish) in the upper Ohio River watershed. Additional work includes analyzing the genetic population structure of these imperiled species and ultimately developing a metapopulation model of their dispersal. Understanding dispersal dynamics around the 17 lock and dam installations in the upper watershed combined with genetic structure will help inform future conservation management decisions.
