My lab investigates evolutionary processes that underlie the rich diversity of tree species in tropical forests. My current work is focused on (i) the historical biogeography and community assembly of tropical forests, (ii) genetic structure and gene flow, and (iii) specimen-based tools for biotic inventory. The graduate students and postdocs in my lab are broadly interested in molecular ecology and evolutionary biology, and have worked in temperate zone and tropical systems on diverse topics including systematics, chemical ecology, trophic structure, and plant-herbivore interactions.
I am always interested in talking with prospective graduate students, and sponsor students with interesting project ideas. Prospective students are encouraged to start a dialog prior to applying.
