Simone Blomberg

I’m a statistical evolutionary biologist. My research sits at the intersection of evolutionary biology, systematics and statistics. I try to come up with new and better mathematical models of macroevolution and develop methods to fit them to data. I guess I’ve become more of a theoretician over the course of my career. I haven’t collected any of my own data since the 1990s! (My PhD was on lizards and I still have herpetological interests). I am a senior lecturer at the School of Biological Sciences, University of Queensland
