I'm a biologist with broad interests, focused mainly on fungal and plant genomics and understanding how these two diverse groups of organisms interact with each other.
I am mainly interested in the mycorrhizal fungal symbiosis, the meta-taxonomic and metagenomic assessment of plant-associated environments, and the dissection of interactions of fungus and plant: from cell-to-cell contact to the modification of gene expression resulting from these communications.
I typically use laboratory techniques and field studies addressing more specific questions using controlled experiments. I have increasingly turned to bioinformatic techniques to handle the analysis of genomic data so I spend a lot of time in front of a computer.
