Welcome to my personal page!
I am evolutionary biologist passionate about understanding how species and populations evolve. This includes understanding processess such as speciation, adaptive radiation, adaptation and various forms of selection. I am also interested how these processes influence genome architecture and evolution. To study these processes, I employ modern DNA sequencing techniques (Next Generation Sequencing) and bioinformatic tools.
Although I am interested in various groups across the tree of life, I recently became passionate about invertebrate evolution. Invertebrates comprise an astonishing diversity, yet they remain (mostly) unexplored. What evolutionary secrets lie beyond these amazing, yet unexplored creatures?
