Areas of Expertise:
Evolutionary Biology ; Genetics ; Develomental Biology
I am a developmental biologist who specializes in evolutionary studies of the
genotype-phenotype map, in particular in non-model organisms of ecological interest. I am
particularly interested in the generative mechanisms of evolutionary change and use a
combination of comparative, genomic and developmental tools in lepidopterans to tackle
how the genetic properties of living systems generate variation and biodiversity.
