The main focus of my research is molecular ecology of large mammals (megafauna), and I am broadly interested in how climate change, environmental shifts, and human impact have affected the past and present abundance, distribution and evolution of megafauna species and communities. So far, my work has encompassed three overall areas: (i) continental-scale biogeography, (ii) past demographic inference using ancient DNA, and (iii) demographic inference and signals of natural selection using population genomics. 

Research areas: Molecular ecology, biogeography, population genomics, demographic reconstruction, selection and adaptation, ancient DNA, palaeoecology, conservation genetics, megafauna
