Alexandre Blanckaert

Post-Doc Researcher

Speciation Hybridization Epistasis

I received a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology from the University of Vienna in 2016, supervised by Pr. Joachim Hermisson. I am currently  working in the Evolutionnary Genomics and Informatics Subgroup of cE3c with Pr Vitor Sousa. Previously, I  did a Postdoc  in Evolutionnary Dynamics with Pr. Claudia Bank (2016-2019) at the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciencia in Portugal . I also did a second Postdoc in the Genetics deparment of the University of Wisconsin-Madison with Pr. Bret Payseur (2019-2021). My research focuses on theoritical evolution, more precisely on speciation and hybridization. I also working on the detection of genes responsible for genetic barriers between species.

My current research is driven by two overarching objectives: 
- understanding the dynamic of speciation and the role of reproductive isolation
- detecting genetic incompatibilities in genomes
