I am interested in studying how genomes evolve and how adaptive traits arise. My interest is particularly in how the genome sequences of related species differ at the whole-genome level, and I study the contribution of events, such as, whole-genome duplications, and gene family expansion/loss, to the emergence of phenotypic traits.
My research has mostly focused on plants but I am interested generally in genomic changes within eukaryotes and have also worked with insect, protozoan parasite, and nematode genomes. My expertise is with genome sequencing data and bioinformatics tools to assemble, annotate, and perform comparative genomics analyses between different species
