I’m Matt Girard, and I am an ichthyologist, or fish fanatic, that uses integrative approaches to answer questions about the evolution and biology of fishes. I am currently a postdoctoral fellow in the Division of Fishes at the National Museum of Natural History. I have broad training in bioinformatics, comparative anatomy, evolutionary biology, genomics, and phylogenetic methods and my research questions can be highly collaborative. Feel free to reach out via email to chat about current or future projects.
