We are a research group working at the Natural History Museum of Geneva in Switzerland.

We study the origin and evolution of insect biodiversity. Participating in field expeditions, describing and placing these species in a phylogenetic context is at the heart of our research. We build phylogenetic and phylogenomic trees to understand the evolutionary processes governing biodiversity assemblage over space and time. We are interested in the biogeographical patterns and the diversification dynamics of a variety of insect groups, including beetles and butterflies. Have a look at the different pages on this website to discover what we do in greater details.
