Researcher

D2.3: BIOINFORMATIC TOOLS FOR STUDYING LONG-SCALE CHANGES IN BIODIVERSITY (PHYLOGENY) AND THEIR CORRELATION WITH ENVIRONMENTAL CHANGES

Research Interests

I am working on the evolutionary genomics of transposable elements within mammals. Mainly, I am interested in the emergence and distribution patterns of transposable elements among marsupials. The aim is to understand the mechanisms behind the propagation and to use transposable elements as a phylogenetic marker system.
