Dr Emma Carroll
University of St Andrews
My current research involves combining genetic, demographic and population models to answer ecological and evolutionary questions about natural populations, with a focus on marine mammals. My Newton International Research Fellowship project is to investigate the influence of migratory culture on the global population structure of southern right whales. Using a combination of micro-chemical, maternal lineage and high-resolution genomics data, we will test the theory that maternally-directed fidelity to winter breeding and summer feeding grounds is a driver of connectivity.
