Welcome to my homepage! I am curator of vertebrates at the Natural History Museum Basel. My research in evolutionary biology aims to understand the origin and genetic basis of speciation and adaptation in rapidly multiplying lineages, to better understanding and alleviate the current biodiversity crisis.


If you would like to collaborate with me or join my group at the Natural History Museum Basel as a MSc, PhD student or Postdoc, please contact me by e-Mail.

I am currently looking for one PhD student and one Postdoctoral researcher to work with me on the genomic origin of large gull species (see Research):
