Working on Heliconius butterflies

Since October 2018, I am now in Cambridge. I have settled in well and am enjoying the scientifically excellent and friendly environment at the Department of Zoology. The group of Chris Jiggins is a lot of fun. I have started two research projects on the genomics of adaptation and speciation in Heliconius butterflies. One on the role of hybridisation in high altitude adaptation and one on a hybrid zone in Ecuador. It is great to dive into another study system. I have not turned my back on cichlids though and am finalizing some cichlid projects as well. Interesting times!
