I am a molecular ecologist fascinated about natural history. My main interests are in evolution, conservation and management of aquatic biodiversity. My research is typically based on molecular approaches such as riverscape and seascape genomics, biogeography, conservation and restoration genomics and ecological genomics. It illustrates how natural historians can contribute to our understanding of evolution and ecology and stimulate public interest about the importance of conserving biodiversity. A large component of the work carried out in my research group combines information from genomics, environmental and Earth sciences to understand the origins and evolutionary trajectories of populations and to inform conservation management.
