Main Focus

My background is in comparative genomics, and I did a fair bit of developmental genetics in a variety of vertebrate animals. After my PhD, I turned my interest towards organismal biology, and I am now interested in understanding how evolution really works. I designed a project on the Anolis lizards, a famous example of an adaptive radiation, which aims to include ecological, developmental and phylogenetic aspects in order to fully comprehend their evolutionary history. In particular, I am interested in the relationship between developmental processes and the course of evolution – how can ontogenetic factors bias evolution and how strong is this influence?
