## Research

I develop statistical models for use as priors in Bayesian methods for phylogenetic inference. In particular, I'm interested in divergence-time estimation -- e.g. modeling rate variation across the tree of life, diversification processes, and methods for incorporating information from the fossil record.

## Time at MBL

Sunday July 27 - Wednesday August 6
