Welcome! My research interests include the biology of paternal leakage, heteroplasmy of organellar genomes (particularly mitochondrial), fitness of heteroplasmic individuals, regions of the genome where heteroplasmy is most likely to be found, evolution of organellar genomes and cyto-nuclear interactions, co-evolution and conflict, among others.

NEWS:

  • 10/3/2019: I've successfully defended my dissertation! On the job hunt now. 

  • It's been great start to the new year!

    • 2/11/2019: Our work on the effect of Daucus carota native pollination has been accepted in Rhodora!

    • 1/31/2019: Our invited review on heteroplasmy in plants has been accepted in Annual Plant Reviews Online! This was a large amount of work, and we are really excited to see it in print.

    • 1/21/2019: The work with our collaborators has been accepted in Bioinformatics! This work involved creating a bioinformatic pipeline, called icHET, to screen entire organellar genomes for heteroplasmy. Keep an out for it.
