My research interests focus on evolutionary genomics and phylogeography of Scorpions. These are ancient organisms, members of Arachnida class and have thrived through different kinds of habitats, occurring on all continents except Antarctica. In my MSc at CIBIO-InBIO I developed my thesis in scorpions phylogeography entitled “ Phylogeography of the Scorpion genus Buthus in the Maghreb region”. Apart from scorpions, I am also developing some work in camel spiders, performing the first genetic diversity assessment in this group. One of the most remarkable features in scorpions is their venom. For my future research career I am aiming to pursue a PhD focusing on the evolution of venom genes in scorpions.
