I am interested in elaborating upon spatial patterns of biodiversity by understanding the ecological and evolutionary processes which may contribute to them. I am fascinated by natural history and ecology, and seek to understand how we can better conserve biodiversity using a combination of molecular data and biogeographical approaches. My areas of expertise are in population genetics, phylogenetics, next generation sequencing and bioinformatics, and ecoinformatics for spatial and environmental data. I mostly use African amphibians in my research but I also work with other taxonomic groups in different geographical areas when I can.
I gained my PhD in 2017 under the supervision of Simon Loader (NHM London) based in the Biogeography department and Centre for African Studies Basel at the University of Basel, Switzerland, funded by the Humer Foundation for Academic Talent.
