In short

I study evolution. I study ants. I study how genes change during the course of evolution. I study how species originate.

After defending my PhD in 2014 I was working in the University of Sheffield, UK, in Professor Roger Butlin’s group as HFSP long term fellow. I am currently at the University of Helsinki and the Centre of Excellence in Biological Interactions.

My research is funded by Foundations post doc pool, Human Frontier Science Program, Finnish Cultural Foundation, HiLIFE and the Centre of Excellence in Biological Interactions.

If you are a student or a collaborator interested in working with me, please get in touch and we’ll work it out!
