Me and Sarah

I’m interested in diversity, describing its distribution and forces that shape it. In my research I use and develop tools from systematics, evolutionary genetics and ecology to try to understand historical and contemporary forces that influence patterns of species diversity and patterns of genetic diversity within species.

In Fall 2016, I started as an Assistant Research Professor in the Department of Molecular and Cell Biology at the University of Connecticut.

If you are interested in the work I’ve done, here are my C.V. and my Google Scholar citation page.

I am an administrator/contributor at the group blog Nothing in Biology Makes Sense!, which covers new research in the fields of Evolution and Ecology. Check it out! Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter!

I’m married to Sarah Hird, an Assistant Professor in MCB here at UConn. We have two young sons, and a dog who, while enthusiastic about the food mess, is overall kind of nonplussed about the whole kid thing.
