Short presentation

I am currently a postdoctoral researcher in evolutionary genomics. I am interested in understanding the origin of biodiversity, and how species adapt to their local environments. In particular, I study what regions in the genome are involved in adaptation, what is the origin of adaptive genetic variants, and how are these variants maintained in populations over time. Currently, I am studying chromosomal inversions and introgression in herring, and adaptation in eels.

Keywords: adaptation transcriptomics population genomics introgression ecology and evolution inversions phylogenomics color genetics evolution of camouflage
