Dr. Megan McCusker » People
I did my Ph.D. in the Bentzen Lab on demographic history, population genetics and phylogeography of wolffishes across the North Atlantic Ocean. I am currently a post-doctoral researcher in Ontario. I am interested in the intersection between evolution, population genetics, and conservation. Specifically, I am interested in how genetic markers can be used to understand the evolutionary history and to address the conservation concerns facing marine fishes. Prior to coming to Dalhousie, I completed an M.Sc. with Rick Taylor at U.B.C. and worked for provincial fisheries in British Columbia.
