I am a researcher currently affiliated with the labs of Thijs Ettema and Fons Stams at the Laboratory of Microbiology, Wageningen University and Research (The Netherlands); and with Steffan Bertilsson’s lab at Sveriges Lantbruksuniversitet (Sweden), through a grant from the Swedish Research Council.

My research mainly focuses on evolutionary genomics of microbial lineages, and I am more generally interested in the study of the processes underlying genome evolution and their influence in shaping the current tree of life. Currently, I am applying genomic and phylogenetic analyses to study deep evolutionary transitions.
