Sterling Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology

I’m interested in using knowledge of plant phylogeny to understand morphological character evolution, diversification, and historical biogeography. Several current projects are focused on elucidating the evolution of Viburnum and its movements among continents and forest communities.
