I am currently interested in plant phylogeny and population genetics of plants and their interface with evolution, phylogeography, and plant morphology as quantified by plant morphometrics. Currently PI of a molecular biology laboratory in the topics above, with emphasis in Orchids, but also other relevant groups for understanding the evolution of the eastern Brazilian biota and Neotropical biogeography.
