I am mostly interested in combining different sources of information to gain insights on the mechanisms that lead to the isolation of populations, genetic differentiation and, ultimately, to speciation.

 

Currently I am involved in several different projects, all dealing with lizards. Examples of such projects are the study of the genetic basis of ventral coloration in wall lizards, the genomic characterization of hybridization patterns across different time scales to investigate the main drivers and genomic consequences of reproductive isolation, the study of coevolutionary patterns between nuclear DNA and mitochondrial DNA and the dynamics of adaptation in extreme environmental gradients.
