My research focuses on the evolutionary history of relatively simple animals -- cnidarians, (jellyfishes, corals, etc.), placozoans (aka Trichoplax), and sponges. I generate and use evolutionary trees (phylogenetic hypotheses) to better understand how the amazing biodiversity of these groups (in terms of morphology, life history, and genetics) has come to be. | - (202) 633-0645
