Personal profile

Research Biography

My research combines social evolution, ecology, molecular phylogenetics, phylogeography and evolutionary ecology.   A major focus is to reconstruct historical evolutionary events, including those that have been influenced by past episodes of climate change.   Our research therefore has broad implications for understanding broad evolutionary theories, the genesis of biodiversity, and threats of extinction.   My   field work has been based in Africa, Asia, Madagascar, South America, and all regions of Australia, and our molecular work is carried out at the South Australian Research Facility for Molecular Ecology and Evolution.

Research Interests

Evolution, phylogenetics, phylogeography, bees, thrips, social evolution, rates of adaptive and non-adaptive evolution, diversification of species over time
