Catherine Cullingham, Ph.D.
Welcome to my website! I am an Assistant Professor in Plant Population Genetics at Carleton University. My research uses molecular biology, landscape ecology, and population genetics/genomics to address issues in wildlife management (and yes, plants are wildlife too!).If you are interested in pursuing research in my lab, please contact me with a brief description of the research project you are interested in and why.
