Research Interests

I am broadly interested in various aspects of animal biology with an emphasis on evolutionary ecology, ecophysiology, and ecotoxicology. My current research focuses on how populations and species adapt to their environment, in particular under scenarios involving gene flow. Using Daphnia waterfleas and Heliconius butterflies as study systems, I am trying to understand the processes of ecological adaptation and speciation in the face of gene flow.
