Amanda J Zellmer, PhD


The broader goal of my research is to understand how spatial landscape patterns shape both ecological and evolutionary processes. In particular, I am interested in the consequences of human-mediated environmental alterations on evolutionary patterns. I investigate these processes using an integrative approach, combining molecular data, experimental data, field surveys, and geographic information systems through the use of computational tools. Many of my research questions center on sustainability and conservation.
