My first PhD student, Mr. Thierry Kuhn, started his PhD project on Sep. 02, 2019. Welcome and best wishes, Thierry!

About Me

I am a principal investigator in the Institute of Biology of the University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland, funded by the SNF Ambizione grant. I am interested in applying mathematical modelling and computer simulations to study problems in evolutionary biology. I am particularly enthusiastic about developing towards a more biologically informed Evolutionary Game Theory, and apply various mathematical tools to model microbial (e.g. bacteria-fungi) interactions. 

Keywords of my research interest: Evolutionary game theory; Sexual selection; Dispersal; Sexual dimorphism; Kin competition; Soft/Hard selection; Income/Capital breeding; Microbial interactions; Demography; Evolution of cooperation; Local adaptation.
