Profile

Research interests

My primary research interests lie in the evolutionary dynamics of speciation
and in the evolution of adaptive traits. I am interested in early stage species divergence and in understanding the mechanisms that shape biodiversity. In previous studies I worked on cichlids of the lower Congo River to study different levels of spatial differentiation and degrees of gene flow in a comparative approach. In my current projects I focus on the genomic and morphological architecture and evolution of adaptive traits.
