I study sexual dimorphism and genetic population structure in the dioicious plant Silene dioica.
My research concerns the causes and consequences of sexual dimorphism in the dioecious herb Silene dioica. By using metapopulations located in the Skeppsviks Archipelago outside the coast of Umeå, I study differences between the sexes in both morphological characters and in life history characters. My research also have a population genetic aspect where I am using microsatellite markers in order to examine differences in gene flow between the sexes and between different metapopulations. Finally, I am also looking at sex-biased gene expression in Silene dioica. Besides the research, teaching is a thing I love to do and I teach regulary at basic genetic courses and evolutionary biology courses.
