My main interest is focused on developing and applying new methods to estimate species divergence times with morphological quantitative data. I aim to use these new tools in Bayesian dating analyses when combining large-scale morphological data sets (with both extant and fossil species) with phylogenomic data sets. Assessing the mixing and computational limitations of MCMC algorithms in this type of analysis will be key to understand the compromise between computational time and data size.
