Prof. Stephan's research group at the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin develops mathematical models of rapid adaptation. This work is supported by the German Research Foundation DFG as part of the priority programme “Rapid evolutionary adaptation: Potential and constraints”. Within this programme, Stephan’s group cooperates with the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology in Plön and the Technical University of Munich. Together with Anja Hörger from the University of Salzburg, Stephan authored the textbook “Molecular Population Genetics”, which was published by Springer in 2019.
