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.
Nic Miles (Postdoc, 2014-)
Nic spends the best of his time working on the evolution of the broad Campanulaceae and the relationship among the five major lineages. You can reach Nic at nicmiles[at]ufl.edu.
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 is studying the evolution and biogeography of Micranthes (Saxifragaceae). This is a group of small herbs found at high elevation and latitudes that among other things have an interesting Western North America and Eastern North America disjunction. 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.
