Short presentation

My research focuses on the genomics of hybridization and speciation in birds. I study these processes in geese, a group of waterbirds that exhibits high levels of hybridization. In addition, I gather the scientific literature on avian hybrids on my website:

Keywords: genomics ornithology speciation hybridization introgression
