 About me

I am very broadly interested in various aspects of evolutionary biology. These include: Evolutionary theory, DevoEvo, evolvability, phenotypic plasticity, complex adaptation and population genetics. 

For my master´s thesis with Prof. Mihaela Pavličev, I am working within a theoretical framework of development and aim to use a maximum likelihood approach to predict the genetic architecture of traits given the variances and covariances of their underlying mutational effects.
