Rui Faria is an evolutionary biologist primarily interested in the mechanisms of adaptation and speciation. His research is focused on the role of chromosomal rearrangements and natural selection in speciation and how they shape genome-wide patterns of divergence during the evolution of reproductive isolation.
Each year Heredity awards a prize for the best paper led by a PhD, Master’s or undergraduate student. Papers can be considered up to 3 years after the original project/degree completion.
Read papers from this years winners and all eligible entrants in our latest collection.
