Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

I specialise in the field of molecular phylogenetics and systematics, focusing on unraveling the evolutionary history of insects, specifically Lepidoptera and Hymenoptera as model organisms. My research has predominantly involved the application of High-Throughput Sequencing techniques and bioinformatics tools to explore biodiversity patterns at the genomic level, conduct objective species delimitation, and examine historical introgression and gene flow among closely related taxa.

In addition to my research, I have been teaching diverse biological courses, including Biological Collections, Molecular Methods, Molecular Phylogenetics, and Biological Laboratory.
