Nick Matzke: Reconstructing Species Migrations Across Time
I am a computational biogeographer, which means I study where plant and animal species live, how they got there, and where they might be going in the future
I enjoy most teaching people to think about models and how to test their models. Often, people have never thought about biogeography this way, and it really is a “Free Your Mind” moment, à la The Matrix,when people get it. Sometimes, researchers don't realize how constrained they have been by the currently available methods.
