Research Professor in Evolutionary, Ecological and Environmental Omics


Research group

Systemic Physiological and Ecotoxicological Research (SPHERE)


  • My main expertise is evolutionary genomic analysis of whole-genome sequencing data. I have been working on a variety of organisms including plants, monkeys and fishes. We also work with crosses and experimental setups in African cichlid fishes. One main focus of my work is the role of hybridisation and genetic exchange in diversification and adaptation. I also have a background in theoretical population genetic and ecological modelling using mathematical models and computer simulation.


You can find here all of the projects that are recorded in the research database of UAntwerp under the name of the academic staff member that acts as a promoter, copromoter or grant holder (a.o. FWO). It concerns only those research projects and mandates that were acquired after an external or internal competition.
