I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at CIBIO-InBIO, working on biogeographic and evolutionary patterns in endemic reptiles and amphibians from the Mediterranean islands Corsica and Sardinia.


During my PhD I studied the biogeographical and environmental correlates to morphological and genetic variation of Archaeolacerta bedriagae (photo), integrating in a multidisciplinary framework allozymes, nuclear and mitochondrial DNA sequences, linear and geometric morphometrics, as well as geostatistical analysis.


My main research interests are in phylogeography and phylogenetics, but in general my interest extends to any evolutionary biology question which integrates different fields such as morphology, ecology, molecular biology, and, recently, also phylogenomics. I mostly used reptiles as a model organism, but so far I have worked also on amphibians, fishes, mammals, insects, and molluscs.
