Office: 5413 (Biocenter 3)
Post-doctoral project : Spatio-temporal genetic variation of butterflies in relation to land use and recent population trends, parts of a newly established Centre for Ecological Genetics (EcoGenetics)
Office: 5716 (Biocenter 3)
Postdoctoral project “Adaptive responses, physiological mechanisms and trans-generational effects of environmental stress”.
Office 5205 (Biocenter 3)
Postdoc at both University of Helsinki and SLU Uppsala funded by the Swedish Research Council. This project combines reconstructed coevolutionary histories and species distribution modeling to predict future species interactions. My favorite study system are butterflies and their host plants.
