Research Interests:

"Genomes only make sense in the light of evolution, so for our research we use a combined evolutionary and bioinformatics approach to address questions at the intersection of genetics and microbial ecology. By studying the genomes of yeast we develop methods that can be used to analyse more complicated genomes and address questions about microbial domestication, pathogenicity and ultimately to predict how yeast biodiversity could be affected by climate change.”
