Activity summary

My research focuses on the molecular processes associated with distinct life-history types in natural populations of a nonmodel organism. I have been involved in evolutionary biology, population genetics, phylogeography and conservation genetics of diadromous and resident fish, with particular emphasis in lampreys. Currently I coordinate the project EVOLAMP - Genomic footprints of the evolution of alternative life histories in lampreys, where I'll use genomics and transcriptomics.
