I’m interested Biodiversity in general, and biogeography and evolutionary biology in particular. During the last few years I have focused on phylogenetics, ecological niche-based models and GIS tools in order to study evolutionary patterns and processes at different time and spatial scales in terrestrial and semiaquatic desert vertebrates (mostly herpetofauna) in the Sahara and Sahel. 

Presently I am expanding my scope to freshwater systems, particularly mussels. I have over 250 days of fieldwork expeditions, mostly in remote regions in North Africa. Other achievements include the successful application to Synthesys and MBZ grants.
