I’m interested in how species form and diversify. In my research, I combine tools from phylogenetics, population genetics and animal communication to examine what promotes speciation and diversification in evolutionary radiations. My primary geographic focus is the Hawaiian Islands, which are a speciation factory – particularly for the terrestrial arthropods, of which 99% of the native fauna are endemic.
