I am an evolutionary biologist whose research examines genomic, morphological and behavioral divergence amongst populations, and the consequences of hybridization between those populations. My work provides direct insights into how the diversity of life arises. It also has practical applications to managing populations of conservation or economic concern.

As a Senior Researcher at the Rivers and Lochs Institute, located on the Inverness College campus of the University of the Highlands and Islands, I lead research into northern Europe's aquatic natural resources. Currently, my work focuses on using genomic tools to guide the management of ecologically important threatened taxa, including salmonid fishes.

Previously, I was part of the Evolution, Conservation and Genomics research group at the University of Helsinki.
