I am using intraspecific gene genealogies to infer origin, pathways and timing of colonisation of Macaronesian birds (extant and extinct), in order to gain insights on speciation processes in the region.

Moreover, I am combining these data with acoustic and biometric information in order to understand mechanisms working in the differentiation among populations.
