Research Interests

Knowledge of drivers of global diversity patterns is limited by the extent to which we understand the evolutionary dynamics that transform undifferentiated taxa into reproductively isolated species. The student would join a group working on processes underlying divergence in wild vertebrate systems, with a particular emphasis on combining information on genomic and phenotypic variation and the importance of changing biotic interactions. The details of any DPhil project would be developed with the student, but could include field, laboratory and modelling approaches. Potential field sites include sites in Australia and south Pacific islands.
