We are broadly interested mammalian systematics and biogeography.  My students and I are currently focusing on three isolated groups of mammals: South American didelphid marsupials, the native rodents of Madagascar, and the indigenous rodents of the Philippines. Reconstructing the evolutionary history of these groups is the first step towards understanding their diversification. We employ DNA sequence data to infer phylogenetic and population history and our research occasionally delves into the realm of molecular evolution.
