Research Interests
Evolution is a process that has led to a remarkable amount of species diversity and morphological forms that fit into numerous ecological niches. Our lab group is interested in how botanical diversity has been shaped by the interactions among morphological, ecological, and species diversification. Research in my lab applies statistical phylogenetic approaches that quantify and incorporate molecular, morphological, and ecological variation to plant systems in order to understand the evolutionary processes of how and why species diversify.
