Research expertise

My research focuses on the effects of evolutionary processes on populations. Atypical reproductive modes and demographic and environmental fluctuations can modify the pattern of genetic and epigenetic diversity. We aim to infer the processes responsible for the patterns observed in order to better understand and protect biodiversity.
