rainforest_treesMy lab group performs research on the evolutionary ecology and biogeographic history of plants that comprise forested biomes. I am particularly interested in understanding the drivers of species richness in tropical forests. We use tools from evolutionary genetics and ecology, focusing primarily on rain forests in Central America and the Amazon basin. We also work in deciduous forests of eastern North America.

I am accepting new grad students and post-docs. Please write if interested in joining the lab group.
