In short

We study evolution. We study ants. We study how new species originate, how genes change during the course of evolution and the role of hybridization in evolution and adaptation.

Our research is funded by Academy of Finland, LUOVA and ILS doctoral schools.

If you are a collaborator interested in working with us, please get in touch!

Check out videos about our recent experiments here (in Finnish) and here!

Here is a link to a past theme issue we contributed to in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B “Towards the completion of speciation: The evolution of reproductive isolation beyond the first barriers“.

You are also welcome to join activites (e.g. seminars) we are co-organizing as a part of ESEB funded Special Topic Network “Integration of speciation research” (IOS).
