Summary

My interests are in the mycetozoans or slime molds. These are those amoeboid eukaryotes that produce spore-bearing structures that resemble fungi. I am particularly interested in the systematics and evolution of the protosteloid amoebozoans. These are mycetozoans where an individual amoeba develops into a microscopic, stalked fruiting body that bears one to a few spores. I am presently involved in testing the hypothesis that the last common ancestor of Amoebozoa was protosteloid.
