In the broadest sense, I am interested in host-microbe interactions and fungal biology. I'm driven by questions regarding how organisms interact, particularly at molecular and genetic scales. My research on the bacterial symbionts living within the fungal cells of early-diverging fungi in the family Mortierellaceae involves investigation of fungal-bacterial mechanisms of interaction, genome evolution, and fungal mating systems. I am also interested in bioinformatics and computational biology.
