Research in our lab focuses on the macroevolution, macroecology, and conservation of flowering plants. While we often incorporate global phylogenetic perspectives, many projects in my lab focus on gathering empirical data on the biology of particular plant species (particularly in Southwestern BC and the Rocky Mountains), or lineages (Anemone, Mimulus, Plectritis).
