Lee Hsiang Liow


Lee Hsiang Liow works at the Natural History Museum and the Institute of Biosciences at the University of Oslo as an Associate Professor. She has a Ph.D in Evolutionary Biology from the Committee on Evolutionary Biology at the University of Chicago. She is interested in Macroevolution and Paleobiology and also dabbled in Conservation Biology and Tropical Ecology in the past.

Liow currently focuses on three lines of research. The first is developing robust statistical approaches to infer biological processes such as diversification rates from patchy fossil observation data. The second is trying to understand the underlying causes of varying rates of evolution in the deep past. The third is promoting bryozoans as a model system in macroevolutionary research.
