G Hosein Yusefi received his MSc from Uppsala University in 2013 and his PhD from University of Porto in 2019. His research interests are broadly in mammal's diversity and distribution. This interest was pursued in his PhD thesis on biogeography, ecology, systematics, and conservation of Iran terrestrial mammals using a combination of morphological, molecular and spatial techniques. He has also strong interest in wildlife ecology and conservation. Before moving to Uppsala, and after working in various projects with small mammals during his BSc and his first MSc (rodents and hedgehogs systematics), he joined Conservation of Asiatic Cheetah Project CACP (a joint project between UNDP, GEF and Iran Department of Environment) as field researcher. Here, and later in Mohitban Society (an independent Iranian wildlife research and conservation NGO) where he worked as wildlife researcher, the scale of his studies changed, and he got more interested in large mammals (particularly Asiatic cheetah and Asiatic black bear).

As a postdoctoral fellow in BIODESERTS group, his research focused on the unique lineage of bipedal jerboas (Dipodidae, Rodentia) to explore their ecological and genetical adaptations in the desert ecosystems. Here he intends to pursue research themes that are more directly address fundamental questions by using innovative methods and tools. The research will be conducted with close collaboration of two other groups in CIBIO, Ecogenomics (ECOGEN, headed by Raquel Godinho) and Evolutionary Genetics and Genomics (EVOLGEN, headed by Miguel Jorge Pinto Carneiro). Simultaneously, he is collaborating in other projects related to mammal’s biogeography, ecology, systematics and conservation across Iran and the other desert regions.
