Background and activities
Understanding the evolutionary dynamics of natural populations require several lines of investigation. In my research, I therefore combine field studies, quantitative-genetic greenhouse experiments, molecular genetics, and meta-analysis of publised data. My current main research activities concerns the evolution of plant mating systems, which I study using the neotropical vine Dalechampia scandens as a model system. I am also interested in understanding how alpine plants, and plant communities, respond to environmental change.
