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.
