Ascomycota, fungal endophytes, phylogenomics, ancestral state reconstruction.

BIography Plus

I am interested in the diversity and evolution of fungi and plant-fungal interactions. My PhD is focusing on the evolution of fungal endophytes within the Ascomycota in order to answer questions about what makes one fungus a mutualist and another a pathogen.

I am a London NERC DTP student at Kew and Queen Mary University of London.
