April Wright is an assistant professor at a primarily undergraduate institution in the South. Her research focuses on incorporating fossils with molecular data for the inference of deep-time evolutionary relationships. In particular, she works with statistical methods to estimate phylogenetic trees from fossil data. As primarily undergraduate institution faculty, she also spends a lot of time considering how to educate and empower diverse undergraduate audiences. Her lab website is http://paleantology.com.
