I am interested in the effects of spatial structure on ecological and evolutionary processes.
During my masters, I analysed a model of species distribution in artificially fragmented landscapes to determine how different spatial configurations of the same habitat area affect species abundance. More broadly, my work helped to contrast the performance of statistical models when input data is not factorially designed.
For my PhD, I will initially analyse evolutionary models using mathematical and computational techniques to investigate the effects of population structure on the segregation of social and competitive alleles. It will help to understand the pace and underlying genetic signatures of adaptation in non-randomly mixing populations.
