About me

My main scientific insterests are focused on understanding how different molecular and cellular mechanisms affect evolutionary processes. More specifically, during my PhD I focused on determining the role of epigenetic mechanism of inheritance, such as histone modifications, in evolutionary adaptation. My current reasearch interests lie between understanding the evolution of phenotypic switching, a phenomenon by which one genotype alternately produces different phenotypes, as well as, its underlying molecular mechanisms, and molecular basis of adaptation to complex environments.
