I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in the department of Biological Sciences at Auburn University. I am currently working with Dr. Jamie Oaks on comparative phylogenetics and inferring shared evolutionary histories of geckos in Southeast Asia. My research is mainly focused on aspects of evolutionary and conservation biology in Southeast Asia. I am interested in the elucidation of cryptic species of amphibian and reptiles, patterns and processes of evolution, systematics, and historical biogeography of the Sunda region. Specifically, I am interested in species delimitation, historical biogeography in the Southeast Asia Mountain Horned lizards (Acanthosaura), which was the focus of my master’s thesis. The main focus of my dissertation research involves collection of both morphological and molecular data to address questions about substrate adaptation, convergent evolution and “adaptive” radiations in the Southeast Asian Rock Geckos (Cnemaspis). My current work involves using genomic data to infer co-diversification of geckos across different regions of Southeast Asia and using this data to investigate landscape and conservation genetics of threatened populations.
