About Me

My research focuses on evolutionary biology, genomics, and molecular ecology, primarily—but not exclusively—in avian systems. Much of my work relies on combining genetic data with other phenotypic, behavioural, and biogeographic information to make inferences about evolutionary processes. I take advantage of the replicated patterns in species radiations, particularly the continental radiation of New World warblers, and my field research has focused on studying contact zones and hybrids zones in warblers and wrens in North America.

I am currently forming a research lab in Department of Biology at Pennsylvania State University. Please see the Prospective Researchers section of this website for more information, or contact me via email about any interest in graduate or postdoctoral mentorship.
