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.

Dr Erica Wickerson
Research Fellow
Modern and Medieval Languages

I research the ways in which time and space interact in literature, and how the subjective experience of time and space is presented in narrative. My main research interest is modern German literature, particularly writers such as Thomas Mann and Franz Kakfa. My book, 'The Architecture of Narrative Time: Thomas Mann and the Problems of Modern Narrative', will appear with OUP.
