Research topics & objectives

Our research is focused on theoretical ecology and evolutionary biology, in particular on modelling interactions between ecological and evolutionary processes on various temporal and spatial scales.

Two of our main questions are: 1) How is genetic and phenotypic diversity maintained within and across species and what can genomic data tell us about these processes? 2) How do eco-evolutionary feedbacks influence whether a small population survives or goes extinct, especially under changing environmental conditions? To address these questions, we build stochastic and deterministic mathematical models and study them using analytic approaches, numerical methods, and computer simulations. Also, we are always interested in collaborating with empiricists to contrast our models with ecological and genetic data.
