Curriculum Vitae


My research focuses on how the evolutionary history of species - their phylogenetic relationships - can inform our understanding of the origin and distribution of biodiversity; and how this understanding can guide conservation decisions across local and regional scales. Key focal areas of my work include ecology, processes that underlie species assembly, species introductions and extinctions, global climate change, and conservation.
