We are based in the Department of Biology at the University of York.

We study speciation, gene flow between species, and the genetic basis of adaptations. Wile predominantly working on neotropical butterflies, our research encompasses a wide range of other organisms: moths, butterflies not from the neotropics, ants, cichlid fishes, seals, mushrooms and flowering plants. We do this in collaboration with researchers across many continents.
