Currently, I'm a postdoc with Ole Seehausen at the EAWAG (Swiss federal institute for aquatic research) in Switzerland. Until September 2015, I worked in Patrik Nosil's lab in the Department of Animal and Plant Sciences at the University of Sheffield, UK, where I was funded by a fellowship from the  Swiss National Science Foundation, and through an ERC grant to Patrik.

Until January 2012, I have been a graduate student in Walter Salzburger's lab at the University of Basel, Switzerland. Before that, I completed my master's thesis in Axel Meyer's group at the University of Konstanz, Germany.

My research revolves around organismal diversification, especially in the context of adaptive radiation. In Patrik's lab I am studying the patterns of genomic divergence across the adaptive radiation of Timema walking-stick insects. In collaboration with Walter's lab, I work on the ecomorphological evolution of Lake Tanganyika's cichlid fishes.
