My networks

I'm conducting my research on rodents, as a model group (short but variable generation time, sequenced whole genome, models in ecological and physiological studies) to test important evolutionary questions. The dynamic history of Sahara environment, with its frequent contractions and expansions of desert habitats, present ideal laboratory to study evolutionary changes on organisms, including many rodent species (e.g: Jaculus and Gerbillus). My former research have focused on the adaptive significance of variation in physiological characters (PhD project), sex dependent natural selection (pre-doctoral Marie Cure Fellowship) and geographic adaptive variation in morphological, physiological and genetic characters (post-doctoral fellowships, Finland, Portugal). Currently I'm focusing on geographic patterns of genetic and phenotypic variations and environmental/climatic factors. One of the important aspects of the evolution on deserts is dynamics of prey predator interactions. I completed PhD in Evolutionary Biology, Ecophysiology in 2008 at the Jagiellonian University and Master Thesis in Environmental Biology, Vertebrate Zoology in 2003 at the Nicolas Copernicus University.
