      Research Topics, Overview of the research

      • Research Topics

        Mammalian evolution and extinction
      • Overview of the research

        I study the evolutionary history of mammals to better understand how their diversity is generated, maintained, or lost at various scales of time (hundreds to millions of years) and space (local to continental).
