Summary

I help curate the amphibian and reptile collections of the Natural History Museum. These collections are used by an international research community to understand the historical and future drivers of biodiversity. My research explores diversification and speciation via analyses of high-throughput DNA sequences, morphology, and spatial data.

Introduction

Summary

I help curate the amphibian and reptile collections of the Natural History Museum. These collections are used by an international research community to understand the historical and future drivers of biodiversity. My research explores diversification and speciation via analyses of high-throughput DNA sequences, morphology, and spatial data.
