Hello!

Looking happier than the bluebottle.

Welcome to my site! I am a keen ornithologist and evolutionary biologist, who just finished my PhD project at Lund University, Sweden, on speciation in birds. Does it seem like a rather broad theme? It is, and to cover it I am working with several study systems, of which many are made up by small radiations on isolated islands. I love doing field work, but for these projects I have spent the main part of my time in the lab, where I am applying both traditional genetic tecniques and state of the art “next generation” DNA sequencing. When asked to describe my project to non-biologists I say “think Darwin 2.0”, which should give a good hint! Read more about this in the Research section.
