I am interested in the development, evaluation, and application of phylogenetic methods, using Bayesian statistics as an overarching framework and fossil as well as extant vertebrates as my model system. My current research projects include testing the performance of existing methods for diversification rate estimation on extinct clades, and developing a fast and flexible Bayesian method for estimating dated supertrees.
In 2018, I started my PhD in Geophysical Sciences at the University of Chicago, where I joined the Slater Lab to work on fossil vertebrate phylogenetics and macroevolution. My previous research experience includes paleontological and ecological fieldwork in Poland and French Polynesia, a bioinformatics internship in the Kondrashov Lab at the Centre de Regulació Genòmica in Barcelona, Spain, and undergraduate research in the Alfaro Lab at UCLA.
