Fish Ecology and Evolution

I am interested in the ecological and evolutionary processes have shaped spatial and temporal patterns of biological diversity, primarily in aquatic environments. I have mainly worked on two systems: European marine fishes, and African freshwater fishes .

Topics currently being pursued include:

  • Speciation and adaptive radiation of cichlid fishes
  • Historical phylogeography of African freshwater fishes
  • Influence of climate change and fishing on marine fish assemblages
  • Conservation genetics of European marine fishes
