In my research, I aim to better understand the processes that shape species evolution and diversity by looking at patterns of morphological, molecular and ecological evolution. In this context, I study the clownfish (or anemonefish; Pomacentridae), a monophyletic clade of fish distributed across the Indian and western Pacific oceans reef habitats. The clownfish are famous for the mutualistic interactions they maintain with sea anemones. The development of obligate mutualism is extremely interesting, because it triggered an adaptive radiation in the clownfish. Currently, my work consist of exploring the multiple facets of clownfish evolution in the context of their radiation. I am also working on assembling the complete genome sequences of several clownfish species to tackle the genomic aspects of adaptive radiation.
