Paulo B. Chaves


Broadly speaking I am interested in evolutionary biology and primatology. My PhD research focuses on the use of genetic analysis to address questions related to evolution, ecology, and conservation. More specifically, I collect data and use population genetic and phylogenetic analyses to study (i) the distribution of genetic diversity within and among populations (ii) reproductive skew, mate choice, and relatedness (iii) species phylogeny, phylogeography, and identification.
