Postdoc in the group biodiversity dynamics
Understanding the origin and genetic basis of speciation and adaptation is the overarching theme and motivation of my research program in evolutionary biology. In an integrative approach, I combine population genomics empowered by next-generation sequencing data with classical morphometric and ecological study and experiments. My aim is to unravel how the origin of genetic variation and genomic architecture may constrain or facilitate adaptation and speciation and thereby govern the speed and predictability of both processes. By answering fundamental questions about the origin of biodiversity, I hope to contribute to better understanding and alleviating the current biodiversity crisis as well as predicting its consequences for the future.
