A new associate editor is joining GENETICS in the population and evolutionary genetics section. We’re excited to welcome Thomas Lenormand to the editorial team.
Thomas Lenormand is Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique research director at the CEFE laboratory. He is an evolutionary geneticist, combining mathematical theory, statistical developments, laboratory experiments, and field work. His work covers a wide range of issues at the intersection of evolution, genetics, and ecology. He is mainly interested in adaptation, the evolution of genetic systems (sex, asex, meiosis, recombination, sex chromosomes) and the effect of mutations. He was an editor and an associate editor of several evolutionary biology journals, twice an European Research Council laureate, and a Harvard Radcliffe fellow. He has received several awards, including the Dobzhansky Prize from the Society for the Study of Evolution.
