Research interests

My PhD thesis is framed within the project «Assisted evolution of flowering onset as a response to climate change».  The aim of the project is to assess the use of natural selection and gene flow as evolutionary forces to enhance the evolutionary resilience of populations of plant species affected by climate change. Our research will focus on modifying the trait «flowering onset» in  Lupinus angustifolius and Silene ciliata. Supervisor: Jose M. Iriondo
