Some of my projects address these questions at large in angiosperms as a whole, while others focus on specific clades such as Magnoliidae and Proteaceae. I use a broad range of approaches including systematics, comparative methods, phylogenetic reconstruction, molecular dating, diversification rates, next-generation sequencing, evo-devo, floral and pollen morphology, and paleobotany. A key focus of my current and future research is to unravel and better understand large-scale patterns in the evolution of flowers (eFLOWER project).
