Personal profile

Research interests

  • The detailed elucidation of fungal biosynthetic pathways, uncovering novel genes and their encoded chemistries.
  • The generation of novelty via biotransformations or pathway engineering.
  • Understanding fungal megasynthetases; in particular non-ribosomal peptide synthetases (NRPS), and how the megasynthetases and tailoring enzyme activities cooperate to generate diversity.
  • The application of comparative bioinformatics to fungal natural product research.
  • The development of molecular tools, such as heterologous expression systems, to aid both basic research and the various potential applications of fungal secondary metabolites.
  • The regulation of natural product biosynthesis, particularly as part of wider cellular stress responses. What this means for our understanding of fungal ecology and how it can be exploited.
