Research topics
Rapid evolution and coexistence dynamics: Theory and experiments
Stable coexistence of many species despite competition for shared resources has been a central topic in ecology. On the other hand, recent studies have revealed that organisms can rapidly adapt to changing environments through evolution. Here we examine how rapid evolution can promote species coexistence by combining microcosm experiments and mathematical model analyses.


I am very honored to receive the Inamori Research Grant. I would like to develop an interesting research project by integrating ecology, evolutionary biology, and population genetics.
