Adaptation to Complex Environments

In the “Adaptation to Complex Environments” group we focus on investigating how interactions between species shape the evolutionary trajectory and stability of systems with two or more levels of biological interactions.

Our goals are two-fold: 1) to understand how the presence of different types of ecological interactions affect the evolutionary dynamics of organisms within a complex system and 2) how this evolution in turn shapes the interactions between organisms, affecting the stability and resilience of the system. For that we will use a combination of tools, such as experimental evolution, theoretical modelling, phenotypic assays, and genomic analyses.
