We are pleased to welcome Dr Mathieu Perret as a new faculty member of the iGE3.

Mathieu Perret is a curator at the Conservatory and Botanical Garden of the City of Geneva, and a senior lecturer at the Department of Botany and Plant Biology of the Faculty of Science. His group applies and develops phylogenetic and genomic approaches to study the systematics and evolutionary history of plants. In particular, they contribute to reconstruct the plant tree of life and use this information to improve taxonomical classification, infer the tempo and mode of evolutionary radiations, and identify the genetic and ecological drivers of phenotypic changes.
