I am queer and I am an evolutionary biologist.//


I am a queer white polyamorous male. I think the goal of science is to better humanity and to better understand the world. Likewise, by making it ok to transcend societal norms we can grow as a society, better understand one another and ourselves.

In my research I am an evolutionary biologist interested in how biodiversity originates through evolutionary processes. My current research aims to infer phylogenies using genome-scale data, map biological trends over evolutionary histories, and to improve upon phylogenetic methods. My past research explored palaeoentomology, tropical community ecology, niche evolution, and species delimitation.
