Will Pearse

will_stonearch_headI study how the evolutionary history of species affects, and is affected by, species’ ecological interactions. I tend to enjoy talking about anything involving a phylogeny and/or bio-statistics. I completed my PhD (2009-2012) in Andy Purvis’ lab (Imperial College London), a post-doc with Jeannine Cavender-Bares (2013-2014; University of Minnesota), and then another post-doc from 2015-2016 with Jonathan Davies (McGill University) and Pedro Peres-Neto (UQAM). I’m currently an assistant professor of Biology at Utah State University. @willpearse Google Scholar CV
