About me

I am a PhD student in plant systematics under the supervision of Catarina Rydin, co-supervised by Tanja Slotte and Sylvain Razafimandimbison. My research focusses on evolution and diversity in the tribe Palicoureeae of the the coffee family (Rubiaceae), in particular within the clade comprising the genera Puffia, Hymenocoleus, Geophila, and Chassalia. I investigate phylogenetic relationships within the clade using a phylogenomic approach and use phylogenies to further address evolutionary and taxonomic questions.
