We are interested in understanding how recent, population level processes have shaped sequence variation in genomes. Our research combines the development of statistical methods for estimating population history from genomic data with empirical work on speciation and community evolution in a variety of Insect systems ranging from desert flies to high alpine beetles and oak gallwasps.
