A lifetime roaming the mountains of Appalachia has instilled in me a deep appreciation for natural diversity and a drive to understand the processes that maintain it, especially given rapid global change. This has led me to my current research at CSU, where I am using Trinidadian guppies to experimentally test the effects of gene flow on local adaptation and population dynamics. My goal is to provide broadly-applicable empirical data to inform a longstanding debate about the efficacy of genetic rescue across a range of genotypes and phenotypes.
