Areas of Expertise:
Speciation, adaptation, stress tolerance, genetics, genomics, CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing

Research Organisms:
Drosophila

 

Research Focus:

I have a broad interest in understanding different aspects of speciation and adaptation, and underlying them trade-offs and mechanisms. My main study object is species of Drosophila virilis group, and I incorporate different evolutionary genetics and genomics techniques to investigate life-histories and mating behaviour of these species.
