About me

I am interested in the phylogeny, systematics, and evolution of Annelida, particularly in the family Chaetopteridae. Chaetopteridae are a globally distributed clade of marine worms with bizarre morphologies which have been shown to be among the earliest diverging lineages in the most recent phylogeny of Annelida. For my dissertation, I am resolving the systematics of this family using a phylogenetic approach. The functional morphological evolution of Chaetopteridae as it relates to feeding mode is also a key focus of my research.
