My research centres around the interface of evolutionary biology and conservation biology. I employ molecular genetic methods and long-term field studies to address ecological and evolutionary questions in time and space. Currently I am leading a research project on snow voles in the Swiss Alps with the overall goal of understanding the role of dispersal on the dynamics and genetics of naturally fragmented populations.
