My research interests lie in studying the evolutionary processes driving the diversification of modern birds, and include the fields of biogeography, historical ecology, landscape ecology and genetics, molecular systematics, phylogeography, and taxonomy. Currently, I am using genomic datasets to answer several key questions related to avian evolution both in the tropics and Eurasia, ranging from spatial and temporal patterns of genetic variation to the development of pre- and post-zygotic reproductive isolation barriers, and species delimitation.
