Guangpeng Ren

Guangpeng's project is on the evolution of Primula on the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau and in particular the consequences for the evolution of species of the recent uplifts in this region. His project links different taxonomic levels and he's using comparative methods associated with phylogeography and NGS data to understand the mechanisms of speciation in this region.
