Postdoctoral Research Associate

 Geoffrey Pope 

 

Geoffrey Pope Building, University of Exeter , Stocker Road, Exeter, EX4 4QD, UK

Overview

I am an evolutionary biologist with interests in the use of population genomics in understanding how species adapt, particularly in a conservation and management context. I am especially interested in the use of genome-wide signals generated by massive parallel sequencing applications: whole-genome sequencing, RADseq and RNAseq.

I am currently a postdoctoral research associate in the Fraser Lab working on a NERC-NSF funded project investigating the ecological genomics of adaptive polymorphism in the Trinidadian guppy (Poecilia reticulata).
