I am interested in fungal genetics, in particular the causes and consequences of genetic transmission systems in fungi. In the laboratory we work with both natural isolates and mutant lab strains of several fungi e.g. Aspergillus, Neurospora, Beauveria, Sodiomyces and Podospora.

Key words in my work are:

  • Fungal Genetics
  • Self nonself recognition
  • Meiotic Drive
  • Senescence
  • Genetic Parasites like Plasmids and Mycoviruses
  • Experimental Evolution
  • Selection Arena
  • Parasex
  • Azole Resistance
  • Alkaliphilic Fungi
  • Entomopathogenic fungi
