Orlando Schwery

Postdoctoral Researcher
Southeastern Louisiana University
Dept. of Biological Sciences

I am a visiting scholar in the Phyleaux-Lab, while I am a postdoc in April Wright's Lab at the Southeastern Louisiana University. My current research addresses the adequacy of Fossilized Birth Death models and Learning-by-Coding teaching approaches.

I did my BSc. and MSc. at the University of Zurich, during the former of which I worked on baculum morphology with Winand Brinkmann, during the later with Peter Linder I was working on diversification of Ericaceae. My dissertation research in the lab of Brian O'Meara at the University of Tennessee was concerned with adequacy tests for birth-death diversification models, and studying the diversification of dung beetles. My past postdoc in Emma Goldberg's Lab at the New Mexico Consortium, addressed the adequacy of trait-dependent diversification models.
