About Sarah Boyer

Boyer's research interests encompass evolution, historical biogeography, and systematics of invertebrates. Her research at Harvard focused on the suborder Cyphophthalmi, a group of tiny Opiliones (daddy long-legs or harvestmen) with a global distribution.
As a lecturer, she designed and taught an ecology class for non-majors, as well as a molecular ecology course for masters students. She has taught in field settings, including a semester-long field biology course at the University of California South Pacific Research Station in Moorea, French Polynesia.
