Dr. Shauna Baillie » People
Shauna’s research is centred within conservation genetics and disease epidemiology, and is motivated by the drive to understand human impacts on the spatial and temporal evolution of animal genes and gene expression. Her current projects with the MGPL involve using neutral theory of molecular evolution to study apparent reversals in parallel adaptive radiation of North American Lake Charr Salvelinus namaycush. Shauna lectures in population genetics, biostatistics and animal biology at Dalhousie University and Saint Mary’s University, Canada. For her Ph.D. (Massey University 2011), she studied colonization genetics and enemy release hypothesis of the New Zealand bellbird Anthornis melanura and their avian malaria parasites. Preceding the above, Shauna taught at the St. Francis Xavier University biology department and was a contract scientist assessing the impact of energy industries on wild animal populations.
