I am a postdoctoral researcher in the field of molecular ecology. My interests focus on the application of molecular tools to better understand the biology and ecology of species. I have mainly worked with population genetics using microsatellites markers and phylogenetics using both mitochondrial and nuclear sequences.

Here is a brief summary of my professional experience:

During my PhD, I shared my time between the Laboratoire d´Ecologie Alpine, Grenoble, France ( and the Norwegian University of Life Sciences, Ås, Norway (, under the supervision of Dr Pierre Taberlet and Pr. Jon E. Swenson. I studied the genetics of the Scandinavian brown bear and the implications for biology and conservation of the brown bear.

I then joigned the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (, Panama city, Panama, as a postdoctoral researcher, under the supervision of Elredge Bermingham and Robert E. Ricklefs. I investigated the phylogeography and population genetics of land birds in the West Indies.

I currently have a postdoctoral position at the National Center for Biosystematics, Natural History Museum of Oslo, Norway ( Here, I work on the phylogeny of bryophytes and vascular plants to test the hypothesis of glacial survival during the last glacial maximum, in Scandinavia.
