Alex Erwin

JD-PhD student


I am using genomic techniques to study the evolutionary history of black-tailed prairie dogs, the effects of sport hunting on pumas, and other smaller projects. I am also concurrently a JD student interested in the legal aspects of conservation.


I designed and co-taught a course: Conservation Genetics Lab (WFSC 430L/530L).
