I am a population geneticist having a deep interest in understanding how populations and species responded and adapted to environmental and ecological changes. I joined the Besansky lab in summer of 2016, and I am currently conducting phylogenomic and population genomic analyses of whole-genomes from the sibling species of the An. gambiae complex, the main malaria vector in Africa. My work aims to reveal their evolutionary history and provide a better understand of the molecular bases underlying their extraordinary adaptive capabilities.
