About Us

cytisus scopariusWe are a small but diverse group of researchers studying a variety of questions in ecology, evolution, epidemiology and the environmental sciences. We are interested in community ecology, ecological specialisation, genomics, symbiosis, vector-borne diseases, and biodiversity informatics.  Our work involves field and laboratory experiments, mathematical modelling and web-based bioinformatics. On this site you can find information about the different projects currently running in the group, what we have done in the past, our recent publications, and the people who carry out the research.
