My activity

My research is focused on uncovering the origins of flowering plant diversity at different scales. I use phylogenies and macroevolutionary models to link plant traits to patterns of species diversification. I also work to understand how climate change shapes diversity in tropical rainforests by reconstructing the recent evolutionary histories of common and rare species. I am interested in using what I learn about species’ evolutionary histories to improve their conservation.
