Recently migrated my site from Jekyll to Hugo for better theme control and LateX support.
I am a postdoctoral researcher at LSU who uses genes, models, and computers to try and understand biodiversity and the factors that shape the diversity of populations, species and individuals.
I predominately study the evolutionary history of species, and populations in an attempt to understand the effect of selection on genetic diversity, and how genetic diversity can drive novel adaptations. My work is heavily integrative and involves phylogenetics, computational biology, evolution, ecology, population genetics and natural history. I have worked on a variety of taxa including fish, herps, invertebrates and viruses but am generally interested in anything with DNA.
