Prof. Farrell’s research is broadly concerned with the evolution of ecological interactions between host plants and animals and their parasites, such as insects and other tiny consumers. His current projects include applying next-generation sequencing to speciation and phylogenetic studies of associated species, documenting biodiversity in the Dominican Republic, and repatriating digital information from scientific specimens of insects and fossils in museums to their countries of origin.
