I'm an evolutionary ecologist broadly interested in the evolution of plant-fungal symbioses. I use classic microbiological methods, ecological sampling techniques, molecular tools, and the robust framework of phylogenetic biology to understand fungal biodiversity, the ecological roles and evolutionary importance of cryptic microfungi, and the evolution of symbiotic lifestyles across the fungal tree of life. I am especially interested in tropical mycology, with a focus on fungal endophytes of tropical trees.
