About Carl

Fern phylogenetics. Moving inexorably my thesis on the evolutionary consequences of polyploidy (genome duplications). Key innovation, or dead-end?

Current projects:

  • "Moderate data approach to deep ferns (man).
  • Using spatially explicit simulation (DIM SUM) to assess robustness of phylogeographic methods
  • Assessing impact of dispersal distribution on population structure
  • Determining impact of ascertainment bias on phylogenies based on SNP data.

Other interests:

  • Herping
  • Bioinformatics
  • Python
  • Phylogenetics and phylogeography
