Michael's research and teaching interests center on the application of population genetic principles towards furthering basic knowledge and understanding of marine population processes. Broadly, he's interested in genetic characterization of natural populations, fishery subjects and aquacultural species. He focuses chiefly on methods for resolving hybridized, admixed, or recently diverged populations, and statistical methods for determining component estimates for mixtures of such populations.  Michael is particularly interested in evaluating the information content of alternate genetic marker types and resolving links between genetic loci and life history variance expressed within species.
