research interests:

I obtained my Ph.D. from the Eötvös Loránd University, Hungary where I have been involved in a theoretical biology research group. I applied a novel discrete mathematical method, the Boolean Analysis for calculating phylogenetic trees

At the Institute of Population Genetics I am examining adaptation to hot and cold environments of Drosophila species at both the genomic and transcriptomic level. After several generations in hot or cold cages we have observed changes in allele frequencies across generations, potentially due to adaptation. I am investigating whether changes in gene expression complement these genomic patterns. To estimate the differences in gene expression across time and between treatments, I use next generation RNA-Seq data analysis.
