Research

I am a PhD student in the Agnarsson lab. My general research interests are Phylogenetics and trait evolution. My dissertation research is focused on elucidating the evolutionary relationships within the subfamily Vespinae (hornets and yellow jackets) using molecular and morphological characters. Furthermore, I investigate the evolution and behavioral traits within Vespinae using phylogenetic comparative methods. More recently, I have begun working on diversification patterns and biogeography of Caribbean spiders. WEBSITE
