Research Profile

Section Affiliation: Infections and Immunity

Research Interest:

I study the ecology and evolution of plant-microbe symbioses, using the keystone legume-rhizobium interaction as a model. I combine quantitative genetics, population genomics, and experimental evolution approaches to understand the genetic basis of microbial adaptation and its knock-on effects on plant traits.

Keywords: symbiosis, mutualism, coevolution, adaptation, symbiotic extended phenotypes
