Current Research

My research aims to use genome-wide information to infer the timelines of diversification processes to enable insights into the phylogeography of rapidly speciating clades as well as the underlying processes promoting their diversification. This work involves the development of methods for the identification of orthologous sequence markers, and of new approaches for divergence-time estimation with genomic data that account for processes such as incomplete lineage sorting and introgression.
