Phylogenetics of social wasps

About

My general research interests are phylogenetics and molecular evolution. My research is focused on elucidating the evolutionary relationships of wasps in the subfamily Vespinae, which includes hornets and yellowjackets, using targeted genes and transcriptome sequencing.
