Principle Investigator

Assistant Professor - Dominic A. Evangelista


I am an evolutionary biologist interested in how biodiversity originates through evolutionary processes.

My current research aims to infer phylogenies using genome-scale data, map biological trends over evolutionary histories, and to improve upon phylogenetic methods. 

My past research explored palaeoentomology, tropical community ecology, niche evolution, and species delimitation. 

You can talk to me about fantasy & sci-fi books, the oppression of societal norms, and the problems you see in higher education.
