I have a PhD deegree from UiO (Natural History Museum (NHM),

Teaching and tutoring

In 2006 I contributed to the teaching of a two weeks laboratory introduction course, part of the BIO4200: Molecular evolution course, under the supervision of Lutz Bachmann (NHM).

Special fields

Population genetics and biodiversity. Evolution biology. Mating system. Wildlife forensics. I am particularly interested in being intrusive in the private animals’ life (i.e. detecting how related individuals distribute themselves in space; detecting multiple paternities).

Ongoing and planned research projects
