I have a broad interest in understanding how sexual and natural selection shape sex differences and what are their genetic underpinnings. My current research focuses on studying the role of mitochondrial and nuclear genome epistatic interaction in sex-specific life-history and reproductive traits, how mating influences sexual dimorphism in gene expression, the cost of reproduction at both mechanistic and fitness levels, and how the genetic architecture shapes these costs and affects ageing in each sex. I am working as a post-doctoral researcher in Göran Arnqvist lab, where we use several seed beetle species as a model system, but mostly Callosobruchus maculatus.

In my previous work I have focused on the genetics of reproductive traits involved in species recognition as well as transcriptome evolution under sexual selection (PhD in Mike Ritchie lab), and the evolution of nuptial feeding (MSc) using Drosophila.
