Summary

I am a Computational and Molecular Evolutionary Biologist. I have an interest in mechanisms of protein evolution and genomic innovation underlying phenotypic diversity across all living systems. The majority of my research is comparative genomic and phylogenomic in nature and is focussed on animal evolution and diversity and early eukaryotic life. I held a fully tenured position for 10 years in Dublin Ireland before commencing a research focussed academic fellowship at the University of Leeds.
