Research Interests

My research goals and interests focus on understanding the evolutionary genetic and genomic processes affecting diversification in reptiles and amphibians by harnessing emerging phylogenetic, population genetic, and coalescent-based methods to analyze data collected using contemporary genome technologies and resources.  My lab endeavors to integrate field work, computational genomics, and local as well as international collaborations.
