“There is grandeur in this view of life, (…) from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.”
Charles Darwin,
On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection (1859)


I am passionate about understanding how biological diversity is generated and how they influence genome architecture. This passion fuels my motivation and career goals as an Evolutionary Biologist. I am interested in processes such as speciation, adaptive radiation, morphological stasis and natural selection. To study these, I employ modern sequencing techniques and bioinformatic tools (i.e. population genomics). My research focuses on non-model organisms.

On the 1st of December (2015) I began a PhD in Evolutionary Genomics and Zoology at the Natural History Museum in Oslo, working under Torsten Hugo Struck.
