I’m an evolutionary biologist with interests in the tempo and mode of morphological evolution. My current post-doctoral work in the Alfaro lab at UCLA is looking at rates of diversification and trait evolution across vertebrate phylogeny. My organisms of choice however are members of the mammalian order Carnivora. Here, you can find out more about what I do.
