I am a theoretical and mathematical biologist, with an interest in population and evolutionary genetic modelling. I investigate a broad range of phenomena, including the evolution of sex and mating systems; adaptation processes; and emergence of infectious diseases. More information is available on my Research Interests page.

I am currently a Marie Curie International Outgoing Fellow. I have just finished working at the University of Toronto (with Aneil Agrawal and Stephen Wright) for the outgoing phase of my fellowship. Here I created mathematical and statistical models, based on coalescent theory, to apply to facultatively sexual organisms.

I am now based at Aarhus University in Denmark for the return phase of the fellowship, working with Thomas Bataillon.
