I am interested in how environmental heterogeneity is related to diversity at a population level. For my Ph.D. I am working on local adaptation, specifically how to detect whether differentiation between subpopulations is caused by neutral processes or selection. The goal is to describe the correct methodology for identifying adaptation of complex traits for different population structures.

During my Masters, I worked on understanding the relationship between genetic connectivity and environmental heterogeneity. First, I worked with a complex fitness landscape to understand how it influenced the evolution of pleiotropy. Following that, my thesis project was on temporal variations in the environment and their consequences for genetic trait covariance.
