I am studying inbreeding depression and its role in maintaining self-incompatibility in a wild plant (Antirrhinum majus) population.

My research focus is the study of evolutionary causes and consequences of sex differences. I am interested in understanding 1) why sexual conflict remains pervasive in spite of the existance of mechanisms to resolve it and 2) what the consequences of such long-standing conflict are, particularly in terms of biomedical implications. I am using a combination of theroy and bioinformatic data analyses to answer these questions.
I am mainly interested in spatial population genetics, where I study the eﬀects of heterogeneous population structure in shaping genetic variation. This includes both developing theory and applying it to spatial genetic data. I am also interested in generating better inference methods that can explain the data and further be used to infer demography by analysing signatures of population structure.
