Key Research Interests

  • Eco-evolutionary dynamics of species’ life-histories and behaviours, with a current focus on (but not limited to)
    dispersal, mating system and inbreeding.
  • Species’ (animals, plants, microbes) eco-evolutionary responses to environmental changes such as habitat
    fragmentation and climate change: development of theory and spatially- and genetically-explicit applied models.
  • Effect of spatial structure and spatial processes on evolution of species’ adaptations and on populations and range
    dynamics (e.g., invasive spread, range shifting…).
  • Eco-evolutionary dynamics of species’ interactions
  • Speciation, diversification and reverse speciation.
