Research Interests

My current work consists in building simulation models to understand the role of evolution in the change in species ranges due to climate change. My focus is on the dynamics of adaptation in age/stage structured populations and on the feedback loop between these dynamics and demography.

Evolutionary biology, evolution in stage-structured populations, life history evolution, biodiversity, evolution of aging, metapopulation, eco-evolutionary dynamics, quantitative and population genetics.
