Molecular Ecology, Evolution, and Phylogenetics lab

Investigating ecology and evolution at the genomic level
We are interested in various aspects of molecular ecology and evolutionary biology, including phylogenetic methods, molecular clocks, molecular systematics, phylogeography, and environmental DNA.

Our aims

Our broad aims are to resolve the evolutionary relationships across the Tree of Life, estimate evolutionary rates and timescales, and use genomic data to address ecological questions.

Our research

Our ongoing research projects span theoretical and applied aspects of genomic and molecular evolutionary analysis. We work on a range of study systems from across the Tree of Life, including animals, plants, bacteria, and viruses. Our work is highly collaborative and we are involved in a number of major international consortia.
