Dr. Lyndon Coghill to Join Phyleaux Lab as Postdoc

Dr. Lyndon Coghill recently agreed to join the Brown Phyleaux Lab in August 2015 as a postdoctoral researcher. Dr. Coghill will be working on an NSF-funded project (DEB-1355071) to develop tools for assessing the fit between models and data in phylogenetics. There exists a great need for these tools as the amount of sequencing data used in phylogenetic studies has increased extraordinarly quickly in recent years. This work will be conducted in collaboration with Dr. Robert Thomson's lab at the University of Hawaii.

Welcome, Lyndon!
