My research focuses on the study of natural homoploid hybridization and its consequences on population structure and lineage evolution. We addressed complex evolutionary scenarios in which the main challenges were the recent divergence of lineages and their extensive hybridization. We explore genetic structure in areas of species overlap, the evolution of sexual systems, and genomic structure at both the population and species levels to explain lineages evolution.
