” (…) 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 evolutionary biologist passionate about invertebrates and about understanding how species and populations evolve through time. 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 several DNA sequencing techniques and bioinformatic tools.

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.
