About

During my PhD I have used population genomic approaches in a system of hares in Europe, to investigate to what extent the demographic context of species hybridization but also natural selection shape the genomic landscape of interspecific genetic exchange. I am particularly interested in understanding how introgression can impact the evolution of natural populations: from the generation of genomic conflicts to the enhancement of the adaptive potential of species.
