I am a PhD candidate working with Dr. John Wiens at the University of Arizona, Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology.
The goal of my research is to identify processes responsible for patterns in species richness, using phylogenetic comparative methods and the fossil record.
Ongoing projects include:
- marine versus nonmarine diversification in amniotes
- global marine biogeography of fishes
- mechanisms of speciation in marine vs. nonmarine animals
I received my M.S. at UC San Diego/Scripps Institution of Oceanography working with Dr. Phil Hastings on blenny systematics.
