Research Fields
  • Systematics
  • Conservation
  • The interface between Microevolutionary and Macroevolutionary processes

Research Directions

(1) Speciation and integrative species delimitation.

(2) The prevalence and consequence of genetic interchange between evolutionary units (gene flow and genetic introgression).
