We’re pleased to announce that Luke Harmon has become the newest member of the Methods in Ecology and Evolution editorial board, taking up the role of Associate Editor. Luke is an Assistant Professor at the University of Idaho, whose research interests focus on  developing new comparative methods and applying them to large phylogenetic datasets:

Ongoing progress in building the tree of life provides a rare opportunity to learn about the dynamics of diversification through time and across clades. Current projects in my lab are focused on testing hypotheses about trait evolution, diversification, and adaptive radiation using statitical comparative methods. I am also interested in the interface between quantitative genetics and comparative methods.
