Research Interests:

My research explores the processes that create plant biodiversity by delineating independently evolving lineages and investigating species boundaries. I work to detect current, continuing and historical processes in two distinct groups of plants. On Madagascar I explore the evolutionary history of the Hibiscus Tribe (Hibisceae: Malvaceae) as well as biogeographical patterns in the family throughout the Indian Ocean Basin. I am also working on the phylogeny and mechanisms of speciation in the American carnivorous pitcher plant genus Sarracenia (Sarraceniaceae).
