My primary interests focus on the evolution, systematics and biogeography of angiosperms, in particular Campanulaceae and Melastomataceae. I work at the interface of evolutionary biology and informatics and in my lab we develop tools that support research in biodiversity science. You can reach me at ncellinese[at]ufl.edu.
Nic Miles (Postdoc, 2014-)
We can't wait to welcome Nic to the lab. He will start working in January 2014 and plans to study putative hybridization events in Wahlenbergia species (Campanulaceae) endemic to the island of St. Helena.
Andy Crowl (Biology, PhD student, 2010-)
Andy studies the evolution and biogeography of the Roucela species complex in the Campanulaceae. This complex is primarily endemic to the eastern Mediterranean basin. You can reach Andy at andy.crowl[at]ufl.edu.
Rebecca Stubbs (Biology, PhD student, 2013-)
Rebecca joined the lab recently and is figuring out a cool research project to pursue. You can reach Rebecca at stubbsrll[at]ufl.edu.
Linda Nhon (Undergraduate student)
Linda is working on the evolution and systematics of Legousia and Triodanis (Campanulaceae). She was recently awarded an Undergraduate Research Honor Student Award that allows her to pursue this research. You can reach Linda at hotlfops91[at]ufl.edu.
Chris works primarily on the TOLKIN project. You can reach him at cdell[at]flmnh.ufl.edu.
Greg Traub (Analyst Programmer)
Greg works primarily on the RegNum Project. You can reach him at gtraub[at]flmnh.ufl.edu.
