I am an evolutionary biologist, currently working in the Ecology group of Mark van Kleunen at the Biology department of the
University of Konstanz, Germany. Before I worked at CIBIO (Centro de
Investigação em Biodiversidade e Recursos Genéticos, a research
institute linked to the University of Porto) where my project involved
the role of introgression in the evolution of tetraploid bread wheat
relatives (i.e., Aegilops species). Previously, I have worked at the
University of Amsterdam and the University of Glasgow. My work has
centered around mating system evolution (loss of self-incompatibility
in Arabidopsis lyrata) and polyploidy (among others on the genus Rorippa).
