Research interests:

'My general research goal is to understand the evolutionary mechanisms underlying the diversification, phenotypic evolution, historical biogeography, and distributional patterns of birds. Specifically, I am interested understanding how the interaction between phenotypes and the environment affects diversification patterns across time and space. To that end, I integrate genetic, phenotypic, ecological, behavioral, and distributional data obtained directly in the field, in the lab, and in scientific collections.'
