Research interests

My research interests are varied, but are firmly rooted in evolutionary biology and other related disciplines, especially phylogenetics and palaeobiogeography.

I am presently investigating the phylogeography of two very different groups, Quaternary Beetles from North America and Eurasian Giant Deer, using information from ancient DNA. I have previously worked on a supertree of the Perissodactyla (rhinos, equids, tapirs and their kin), as well as reconstructing Carboniferous palaeoenvironments and reviewing the end Ordovician mass extinction.
