I received my PhD from the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST). The main focus of my PhD was the evolutionary genetics of complex traits. I used quantitative genetics, phylogenetic comparative methods, genomics, transcriptomics, and network approaches to understand the genetic basis of complex trait evolution. The trait of focus was snake venom.
My project at UNIL involves using life-history transitions to uncover the genetic basis of phenotypic evolution. My main system for this project is teleost fishes.
