My work focuses on the factors of diversification in mammals and birds. Biotic and abiotic variables may favor or constrain diversification processes. My aim is to define the major variables of interest acting on mammals and birds evolution.
In my PhD, I have been mainly focused on the influence of latitude and abiotic variables on diversification. Diversification rates (speciation rates and extinction rates) may vary between tropical and temperate regions and studying this difference with both new methods and new phylogenies may help our understanding of the still unexplained latitudinal diversity gradient.
I’m also interested in using existing phylogenetic methods, such as correlative or character-dependent methods, to help current conservation in a context of global change.
