Jamie Oaks

Former Ph.D. 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 an NSF postdoctoral research fellow working with Adam Leaché and Vladimir Minin at the University of Washington. In August 2016, I start as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at Auburn University. More information about me can be found on my website phyletica.org.
