EJM with Prarie Dancer at the Double Helix Ranch (2010).
I'm interested in phylogenetic methods, genomics, and how those two fields can best be combined!
Not tied to a taxon, I've worked on cattle - with a focus on Texas Longhorns, frogs, salamanders, simulated data, and chipmunks.
I'm excited about programming and teaching scientists to be better programmers. I teach for Software Carpentry and highly recommend their videos and workshops!
I also teach at the Molecular Evolution workshop at Woods Hole.
