Biography

I am broadly interested in evolutionary biology. Much of my research is focused on the evolution of insects. My most recent work has been on the evolution, population genetics, molecular phylogenetics, and genomics of cockroaches and termites. Visit my research page to see an overview of our research focus. Please see my complete CV for a full list of publications.
