Research Interests

My main interest is in evolutionary genetics, particularly in the molecular basis of speciation and adaptation.
A great way to learn more about speciation is to study hybrid zones.
The vole species Microtus arvalis is split into several very divergent evolutionary lineages separated from each other by narrow hybrid zones. I am analyzing populations in such a hybrid zone with next generation sequencing in order to better understand the molecular basis of reproductive isolation.
