Colin Garroway

Colin is interested in the ways that population-level processes shape the generation, maintenance, and loss of biodiversity at genetic, population, and species levels. He focuses his research on species and systems that have experienced substantial recent environmental change – usually change due to human activities. He currently works on questions related to climate change-related range expansions by sub-Arctic whales into Arctic waters, evolutionary change in invasive sea lamprey populations in the Great Lakes, and urban evolutionary ecology. His urban work involves running a field program monitoring urban and rural red and grey squirrel populations and synthetic analyses of the genetic and community-level consequences of urbanization at broad spatial scales using open data.
