Catherine Cullingham, Ph.D.
Welcome to my website! I will be joining the Biology faculty at Carleton University as Assistant Professor in Plant Population Genetics in July. My research uses molecular biology, landscape ecology, and population genetics/genomics to address issues in wildlife management (and yes, plants are wildlife too!). I am currently recruiting graduate students to join the GP3 lab, take a look at my research and see if your interests are in line with mine.
