About Suda Parimala Ravindran
My general research interests lie in understanding how organisms adapt in natural populations. I am interested in understanding genetic divergence at both regulatory and sequence level. I am also interested in evolutionary histories of populations and species.
Here in Tjärnö, I am interested in understanding how snails (Littorina saxatilis) adapt themselves to contrasting habitats on the Swedish west coast. For this, I use population genomics approaches to identify candidate genes that shape local adaptation at both regulatory and sequence level.
I also work with brown algae (Fucus) to understand the origin and evolution of clonal lineages. I am also involved in the demographic reconstruction of brown algae, particularly of the F. vesiculosus – F. radicans complex from the Baltic Sea coasts, to understand the geographical origin and mechanisms responsible for these two ecologically divergent taxa.
