Symbioses are instrumental to ecological and long-term evolutionary success across the vast majority of life. In order to elucidate broad-scale ecological and evolutionary patterns in symbiotic systems, my research focuses on fungal symbioses.

My principal research interests focus on three major areas: (1) diversity of lichen symbionts; (2) the impact of symbiotic relationships in ecology and evolution; and (3) bio-monitoring and climate change research.
