Research Statement

Why are there so many kinds of animals? We quantify the roles of diet, anatomy and environment in a hyperdiverse group of neotropical bats. What can we do to stem the sixth extinction? We study the socioeconomic and spatial dimensions of land use change in the northern Andes biodiversity hotspot. We have uncovered a new cranial phenotype that led to high diversification among frugivorous bats, and indirect deforestation driven by the market for illegal drugs.
