" The history of life on Earth is marked by complex interactions between species genomes and phenotypes across constantly changing environments. Reconstructing these deep time evolutionary patterns and processes is key to understand the construction of both past and modern biological diversity. Our lab in the Dpt. Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Princeton University investigates these phenomena by integrating genomic and phenotypic data from living and fossil species to infer the origin of major groups of vertebrates (with stronger focus in reptiles), their evolutionary relationships, key innovations during major evolutionary transitions, and how these were impacted by climate change across broad taxonomic and time scales".
