Research interests

My research on plant diversity integrates the disciplines of systematics, evolution, ecology, and molecular biology and seeks to understand phylogenetic relationships, character evolution, historical biogeography, and diversification patterns/mechanisms of vascular plants. One of the focal plant groups are the Ochnaceae s.l. (=Medusagynaceae, Ochnaceae s.str., and Quiinaceae; Malpighiales). Of particular interest are the phylogenetic relationships within Ochnaceae to evaluate existing classifications. Using DNA sequence data and a molecular clock, I also investigate the historical biogeography of this pantropical family. Another group I am interested in are the Malvoideae (Malvaceae) of the coastal deserts of Peru and Chile which I use, for example, to unravel evolutionary mechanisms in extremely arid deserts, especially concerning the contribution of polyploidy, hybridization, and introgression to plant diversification. Besides applying molecular techniques to address the outlined questions, an important part of my studies is still basic monographic work.
