Research Interests and Current Work
I am interested in all aspects of plant biogeography. In my research, I test biogeoghraphic hypotheses using macroevolutionary and macroecological methods involving phylogenies, fossils, anatomy and morphology, ecological models and statistical methods, and big data.
I am also interested in evolution, systematics, and taxonomy of diverse, vascular plant groups.
My present work is on several aspects of the relationships among functional traits, molecular evolutionary rates, and colonization success of selected North American plant groups.
I am currently a postdoctoral fellow in the research program of Jun Wen at the National Museum of Natural History of the Smithsonian Institution.
