My research involves using public genome databases and bioinformatic tools to investigate the evolution of vertebrate genomes, especially those regions that include gene families involved in neurobiological and endocrine processes. Currently I am researching the molecular evolution of neuroendocrine peptides and receptors, including the growth hormone-prolactin system and the oxytocin-vasopressin system, but I'm also involved in projects about the evolution of visual systems and of ion channels.
