Adam Sepulveda, Ph.D.

My research program focuses on aquatic invasive species risk assessment, early detection, and management in the West. I coordinate the Rapid Environmental DNA Assessment and Deployment Initiative & Network (READI-Net) project associated with the U.S. Department of the Interior National Early Detection Rapid Response program.

Research Interests

Adam Sepulveda’s research program provides science to inform aquatic invasive species management. Focal elements of his research program include:

  • Research to operations of autonomous environmental (e)DNA samplers to improve detection rates
  • Development of standardized procedures and statistical approaches to ensure confidence in eDNA results
  • Decision support and communication tools to facilitate the uptake of eDNA results by decision-makers
