Assistant professor, SciLifeLab fellow
I recently established my research group at Uppsala University, in the Systematic Biology program (Dept. Organismal Biology). Prior to my move to Sweden, I was a PhD student at the University of Geneva (Switzerland) between 2004-2009 and a postdoc fellow at the University of British Columbia (Canada) between 2009-2016.
My research focuses on the study of unicellular eukaryotes (aka the protists) from a genomic perspective, in order to understand the great diversity of living creatures.
I am also a dad, a passionate photographer (check out some of my pictures on Flickr), and a windsurfer who loves to go out on the water on a windy day.
