Research work

Our lab investigates open questions in the theory of evolution and in other fields in biology, using mathematical models, simulations, and sometimes experiments. Current research topics include the evolution and mechanisms of: Stress-induced genetic variation, including mutation, sex and dispersal Host-microbiome interactions affecting behavior, including cooperation, aggression, parental care and addiction Epigenetic inheritance Plant bioacoustics and communication

Areas of interest & scientific knowledge

Computational & Theoretical Neuroscience
