Dr. Annie Lindgren

In addition to coordinating with researchers, visitors and students in CLEE, I study the phylogenetic relationships of extant cephalopods. I utilize molecular, morphological, biogeographic, and bioinformatic tools to better understand how modern cephalopods have diversified, and to provide novel approaches for understanding phylogeny and evolution. I am broadly interested in patterns and processes that drive evolution in the marine realm, be it in the shallow nearshore waters or the deep sea.
