Jamie Oaks

Former PhD student

I completed my Ph.D. in the Fall of 2013 working with Mark and Rafe Brown on developing and implementing approximate-Bayesian methods of comparative phylogeographical model selection, and applying such methods to sequence data from populations of vertebrate species from the Philippine Archipelago to examine the effect of Pleistocene sea-level fluctuations and associated island-connectivity cycles on population structure and speciation. I am currently a postdoctoral research fellow working with Adam Leaché and Vladimir Minin at the University of Washington. More information about me can be found on my website www.phyletica.com.
