I study diversification, species delimitation, trait evolution & other macroevolutionary questions, often using new methods. Also random coding projects in my own time. I'm a college professor.

Views my own. Living in Oak Ridge, TN, USA.

I often follow interesting mastodon servers by following all their users (basically, merging several local feeds). Bonus is this helps new people get at least one follower (me) quickly.
