I am interested in the general areas of fungal genetic, ecology and evolutionary biology. My lab work with a diversity of fungal species, from saprophytes to mycorrhizal mushrooms and animal and human fungal pathogens. We study their patterns of genetic variation with respect to both abiotic and biotic factors.
