Roderick Research

Professor Roderick’s esearch includes studies of the origins of endemic, indigenous and non-indigenous organisms, processes associated with colonization and invasion, population structure and species interactions.  Approaches include population genomics, computational biology, GIS, niche modeling, natural experiments, collections-based research, and other tools. Some of this work deals with older colonizations and geological history, such as the assembly of ecological communities in the South Pacific and other work examines the recent biological invasions, their impacts, and solutions, including disease vectors and biological control.

Research collaborations include the Moorea BioCode Project, Island Digital Ecosystem Avatars (IDEA), and NSF Hawaii Dimensions of Biodiversity.
