Fungal adaptation from communities to genes

We study the ecology and evolution of fungi with the goal of understanding the ecological factors that generate and maintain fungal diversity. Specifically, we use a combination of field, laboratory and computational approaches to investigate how fungi colonize and persist in the environment. Our studies range biological scales, from ecological communities to genomes and genes, and have a particular emphasis on adaptation to hostile environments.
