Personal profile

Research interests

Land plants (embryophytes) have undergone a series of whole genome duplication (palaeopolyploidy) events throughout their evolution, sparking a series of hypotheses relating major innovations and diversification to genome duplication. The purpose of my research is to explore the placement and timing of these duplications across the plant phylogeny and to test any causal hypotheses relating to the evolution of plant complexity.
