I am interested in the eco-evolutionary dynamics of local adaptation and dispersal of species. In this respect I use individual-based modelling techniques to investigate life-history evolution of Mediterranean forest trees under different fire regimes and their adaptive potential under climate change. I am furthermore generally interested in mechanisms responsible for the formation of species’ range limits.
