Justin C Bagley
I am an evolutionary biologist interested in using and developing genetics-driven approaches (among others) and computational tools (bioinformatics scripts/pipelines) to understand processes shaping the diversity, distributions, and adaptive evolution of species through space and time. I am also interested in applying the inferences and tools of evolutionary genetics to the conservation of threatened and endangered species. Under these general themes, my research focuses on advancing our understanding of the ecology and evolution of natural populations of animals and plants in four key areas, which naturally overlap: 1. Evolutionary Genetics, 2. Systematics, 3. Evolutionary Ecology, and 4. Conservation Genomics.
