I am an evolutionary biologist interested in using phylogenetics, statistics and bioinformatics to answer questions relating to the evolution of molecules, genomes and ultimately organisms.
I like to think that we can study and integrate the different levels of complexity that drive evolution: from the molecular changes that shape genomic structure and function, to the responses of organisms to challenging environmental changes.
