Michael Lloyd, Ph.D.

Computational Scientist

My research has focused on the application of genetic data to complex biological problems.

I joined the Jackson Laboratory having previously worked on a diverse set of organisms. My Ph.D. focused on population and conservation genetics of a submersed aquatic plant species, which was targeted for restoration efforts. Prior to joining Jax, I was a member of the Department of Entomology at the Smithsonian Institution. In that role, I was responsible for the generation and analysis of target enrichment data used in phylogenomics. At Jax I have been involved in research projects associated with the Jax PDX program, PDX Network, PIVOT consortium, and Cube initiative.
