Rui Miguel Macieira de Faria

I am an evolutionary biologist primarily focused on studying evolutionary genomics of adaptation and speciation. In particular, I’m interested in understanding the role of chromosomal rearrangements in adaptation and reproductive isolation using Littorina species (marine Gastropod) as model system. My ultimate goal is to contribute for an open and creative lab environment while searching for answers to a diverse array of problems within the field of evolutionary biology. I am currently a researcher at CIBIO/InBIO (University of Porto) and a close collaborator/visiting researcher at CIIMAR as well as in the Department of Animal and Plant Sciences at the University of Sheffield (UK).
