I have active research in: detection of signatures of selection in human, bovine, salmon and chicken genomes; Irish human population structure; Y chromosome diversity and Irish medeival genealogies; ancient DNA; origins of livestock as discerned using genetic diversity; genetic basis of disease resistance in West African cattle; haplotype decay and the age of cattle hybrid zones; detection of recombination in mitochondrial genomes.
