evolution Research Abstract

Comparative methods in evolutionary biology use phylogenetic trees to explore the origins and maintenance of biodiversity. I develop methods to extend the kinds of questions we can ask and also to test the statistical limits of our ability to make evolutionary inferences through such a periscope into the past.  I am particularly interested in detecting evolutionary regime shifts – locations in evolutionary history where the governing rules or parameters shift suddenly – as well as more general questions of model choice, informativeness & identifiability in phylogenetic inference.

This is the cover page to my phylogenetics research.  Below are displayed the live rss feeds for the current entries in the notebook, most recent articles, figures and commits to the code.  This serves to give a brief overview of the project’s current status through these different aspects.
