Academic interests

My primary research interest lies in the field of Evolutionary Ecology and Genomics of Natural Populations. I am particularly interested in how variation in genetic architecture and ecological interactions affect the adaptive potential of natural populations and determining the ways in which natural selection and other evolutionary forces might act on a population. Thus, topics like inbreeding depression, hybridization, genetic introgression and ecological dynamics in natural populations are of my interest.

For my PhD I joined the sparrow group under the supervision of Fabrice Eroukhmanoff and Glenn-Peter Sætre. I'm working on the evolvability of genomic architecture during hybrid speciation using the Italian sparrow as a model species. My project focuses on the genetic basis of adaptive traits in the hybrid Passer italiae and its parental species. I will assess the population structure of the hybrid species and whether it can be explained by isolation by adaptation and demographic history. I will also study the interspecific variation in genomic regions linked to local adaptation and the effects of species interactions on phenotypic and genetic variation in the sparrow system.
