I am a herpetologist with a main interest in ecology, evolutionary biology and conservation of Mediterranean, Arabian and North African reptiles and amphibians. My current research projects mainly focus on the evolution, biogeography, ecology and conservation of North African herpetofauna (Salamandra, Alytes, Hyla, Natrix, Bufo). I also work extensively on the Pelobates genus.
