As a researcher, I have a background in ecology and evolution. During my undergraduate years, I realised that many of the questions I was interested in answering in the context of evolution, could only be achieved in the field of population genetics. I have been fascinated by the outcome of ground-breaking discoveries that has followed the genomic revolution and feel privileged to have been part of recent years research projects on the African great apes. My future perspectives are directed towards putting this knowledge into an applied context that could provide great improvements to the conservation efforts of endangered species like the great apes.
