Ronan O'Sullivan

Ronan is a 4th year PhD researcher based at the School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences in University College Cork, Ireland. He uses quantitative genetics and statistical modelling to determine how genetics and ecology interact in free-living populations of salmonids. He is particularly interested in applying quantitative genetics to data-poor systems to understand the limits of such theoretical application.
