Kristen Camille Ruegg

WELCOME! I am generally interested in understanding the mechanisms that generate and maintain species diversity in terrestrial and marine systems.  The methods I use are integrative, combining field-based behavioral studies, population genetics/ genomics, GIS-based ecological modeling, and acoustic analysis.  I specialize in the application of genomic and genetic tools to address basic and applied evolutionary and ecological questions.  Please explore my website for further information on my background and research interests.
