Personal Statement

Personal Statement

I am an evolutionary biologist interested in how biodiversity originates through macro-evolutionary processes. My current research aims to infer phylogenies using genome-scale data, map biological trends over evolutionary histories, and to improve upon phylogenetic methods. My past research explored palaeoentomology, tropical community ecology, niche evolution, and species delimitation. See my publications on Google Scholar. Or visit my website for more information about my lab and research.

In addition to my phylogenetics research I also work with researchers at other institutions on the EntoPOC collective (EntoPOC.org). EntoPOC does research, advocacy, and recruitment of people of color into Entomology, one of the least inclusive fields in biological sciences.
