I am interested in patterns and processes
of DNA sequence evolution in species and natural populations of vertebrate
animals, as a mean of understanding their ecology, systematics, biogeography,
and behavioural and anatomical evolution. My laboratory has developed a whole-genome phylogeography approach to these questions. Recent investigations in my lab include the following
