Evolutionary biology, phylogenetics, and conservation biology. My recent research has focused on phyloinformatic approaches for summarizing large genetic datasets, phylogenetics and phylogeography of turtles and other herps, and conservation work focused on setting statewide priorities for the management of California’s amphibians and reptiles.

Outside of research, I currently serve as the Associate Director for Research in the School of Life Sciences and Chair of the Ecology, Evolution, and Conservation Biology Graduate Program. I teach courses related to evolution, conservation, and computation.
