My research interest lies at the intersection of phylogeography and trait evolution. I am interested in understanding how shared ancestry effects trait evolution within a species and among closely related species. My current work involves transcriptomics and genomics to understand the evolution of venom variability in venomous taxa by comparing the relative importance of sequence and expression variability. The common theme in the research projects I am working on is the use of phylogenetics to understand evolutionary processes.
