In our lab, we are interested in using phylogenetic trees to understand biology. New methods provide powerful tools for understanding the processes leading to extant patterns of morphological, behavioral, biochemical, and species diversity as well as various types of interactions. We have done empirical work to answer questions and methods development to create tools to allow us to answer more questions. See more info here.
I am an assistant professor at U of Tennessee, Knoxville, in the department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, as well as an adjunct in the Graduate School of Genome Science & Technology. For more about joining my lab, or other opportunities in Knoxville, see here.
