evolutionary biology, genomics, bioinformatics





Research interests

Enjoying the genomic revolution in molecular ecology and evolutionary biology, I am working on many great projects (in phylogeography and population genetics, genotype-phenotype mapping, landscape genetics, speciation genomics of species complexes,...) but my current hot research topic is epigenetics and its evolutionary potential.

I like speculating. About the many ways and the many reasons speciation can happen. About the dynamics through which a genome can generate infinite ecological niches to thrive in. About the multiple layers information can be stored in an organism.
