My work is focused on the molecular phylogenetics of Section Rhododendron from the Hengduan Mountains hotspot of south-central China. In particular, I am focused on tracing the origins of polyploidy in subsections Triflora and Lapponica, while also investigating the systematics through herbarium and morphological studies.
