Evolutionary genomics; Speciation
My main research focus is on speciation and evolutionary genomics. Why do some taxa rapidly generate new species, whereas others remain species-poor? I am particularly interested in the role of hybridisation
(interbreeding) in rapid speciation and adaptation. My study systems include cichlid fishes from the East African Lake Victoria and Heliconius butterflies from the Andes in Ecuador.
