Postdoctoral Scientist

Aarhus University (Denmark)

I’m a postdoctoral researcher in Plant Evolution & Biodiversity Group leading by Dr. Wolf L. Eiserhardt at Aarhus University in Denmark.

Former Soltis Lab member. 🐊 Once gator, always gator! 🐊

I have a keen passion for applying phylogenetic tree as a pivotal framework attempting to solve some fundamental issues in biology. Phylogenetic tree is a crucial reference system for biological research. It captures evolutionary relationships among species, linking all the biological data together with an evolutionary context, serving as the biological “Periodic Table”.

My research interests are:

  • Building and using large-scale phylogenetic trees to explore the evolutionary and/or ecological patterns with spatial and/or paleoclimate data. E.g., some works have done for rosids and PhyloSynth.

  • Investigating the phylogenetic incongruence among data partitions, and deciphering its potential evolutionary cause

  • Studying taxonomy, phylogeny, biogeography, origin and dispersal for a focal clade (e.g., Elaeagnus)

When NOT struggling for existence, I occasionally do some coding!!

Positions

Research Interests

A phylogenetic tree is a pivotal framework for solving fundamental issues in biology. For a long term, I have endeavored to build large scale of robust phylogeny to understand the evolution of Angiosperms and its diversification under the interactions of biotic and/or abiotic factors using the big data and phylogenetic comparative methods.
