We are pleased to welcome Dre Yamama Naciri as a new faculty member of the iGE3.

Yamama Naciri is a curator at the Conservatory and Botanical Garden of the City of Geneva, and a lecturer at the Department of Botany and Plant Biology of the Faculty of Science. His group aims at understanding the diversification of species and their evolutionary history at both the intra- and interspecific levels. Her research themes encompass species phylogeography with applications in conservation as well as species delimitation and relationships in different groups of plants using molecular markers, in addition to the traditional tools of morphology and/or anatomy.

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.
