Research Interests

Fungal genetics, population biology, and evolution

Ongoing Research

Population genetics and evolution of fungi. I am interested in the processes that shape the structure of fungal populations including sexual and somatic recognition, reproduction, mutation and recombination. To investigate the impact of these natural processes in populations, our research uses the tools of molecular genetics, genomics, and evolutionary biology. Current research includes the following:
