Jesús Ortega – new postdoc

I am a 32 years old postdoctoral researcher and did my PhD in the Natural History Museum of Madrid (MNCN, CSIC) on the mechanisms underlying phenotypic variation in the Iberian wall lizard species complex (Podarcis hispanicus). I am both a field and lab person whose previous work has focused on reptiles, and lizards in particular.

Currently, I am working with Anna Runemark as a postdoctoral researcher in the Evolutionary Ecology of Plant-Insect Interactions research group. We focus on host plant races of Tephritis conura flies and combine methods from evolutionary and chemical ecology and genomics. We aim to investigate the build up of epistatic interactions and the relative roles of regulatory and coding divergence at different stages along the speciation continuum but also the underlying basis of host plant preference.
