The MEEP lab has a strong focus on research and is a dynamic and productive group. Members of this research group are interested in various aspects of molecular ecology and computational evolutionary biology, including molecular clocks, evolutionary rates, phylogenetic methods, calibration techniques, and ancient DNA. We work on a diverse range of organisms, including animals and plants, with special interests in megafauna, isopods, and termites.
Recent research projects span a broad range of topics and include both theoretical and applied aspects of phylogenetic and molecular evolutionary analysis. Much of this work is performed in collaboration with researchers on campus, across Australia, and in other countries.
