Pablo Duchen

Pablo's project investigates if we can model the evolution of phenotypic traits and their variances to bridge micro- and macro-evolutionary processes. The goal of this part of the project is to build upon a model that we have recently proposed (Kostikova et al., 2016) and to develop a novel model testing framework to further understand the evolution of the variance in phenotypic traits within a macro-evolutionary framework.
