Dr. M. Hickerson's research group develops computational and statistical methods that merge population genetics with community ecology.   Using comparative population genomic data, his research uncovers how biological communities are shaped by the interplay between changes in climate, landscape, species distributions, and geographic patterns of genetic diversity within and across species. Members of his research group are also developing tools that use genomic data from multiple individuals to understand the evolutionary history of population isolation and connectivity, origins of range expansion and invasion, as well as historical spatial patterns of extinction and colonization.
