Meet your researchers

Ashwini V Mohan

Ph.D. student, TU Braunschweig, Germany

Studying a genus of day geckos in the Indian Ocean islands.

Her interests revolve around how and why species are distributed where they are (biogeography), genetic diversity in island populations; how, when and what factors enable species to diversify? (macroevolutionary patterns) and how do closely related species co-exist without removing the other? (evolutionary ecology).

What our participants from previous sessions say...

"During the course, when the instructor guided us through the steps she took to reach her position, was quite resourceful, specially to the students aspiring to enter the field.
I found it useful and I hope to get more information about the process of starting a research in natural history, in further lectures as well. "
Rahul Manshani

"Each and every word of this session was useful and valuable for me. His presentation was expressing his efforts, experience and knowledge.
I gained a lot knowledge from you. Thank you so much"
