The origin of plants: genomes, rocks, and biogeochemical cycles
I am an evolutionary biologist and am primarily interested in the large-scale patterns of macroevolution. My main research focus is in combining information from the fossil record with extant species to obtain a clearer understanding of the diversification of life.
Currently I am working on the project 'The origin of plants: genomes, rocks, and biogeochemical cycles' and my role in this is to estimate the divergence times of early land plants
