I am Lynsey R. Harper – welcome to my website! I am an ecologist that is particularly interested in applying environmental DNA (eDNA) metabarcoding to aquatic and terrestrial communities to understand how composition, structure, and interactions change in response to anthropogenic and environmental stressors. My research to date has used single-species and community eDNA approaches to study species distribution, diet, and interactions. I have now made the move to industry to work as a Product Manager for NatureMetrics.
