My research interests go from evolutionary biology to sexual selection and behaviour, through population genetics. In particular, I am fascinated by the diversity of sex-determination mechanisms and the evolution of sex chromosomes.
Many of the evolutionary processes leading to this diversity remain unclear, as fundamental as they can be. How and why are ectothermic species distributed along a continuum between fully genetic- and fully environmental sex-determination?
During my PhD, I will try to understand how this model can be applied to an extremely widepsread amphibian species and how it affects the dynamics of sex chromosome evolution in populations under both genetic and environmental influences.
