My work applies evolutionary principles to understand the acquisition of antifungal resistance in human fungal pathogens. I am particularly interested in determining the factors that constrain and promote genotypic and phenotypic diversity in the context of drug resistance.
18/01/08 I was thrilled to have the opportunity to present in the American Naturalist "AmNat 150" Symposium at the standalone meeting of the American Naturalist. See my blog post for a link to my presentation about the impact of Lenski et al. 1991 on the field and my own research. This was the first paper documenting the first 2000 generations of the E. coli experimental evolution study that is now above 65 000 generations!
18/06/22 I'm presenting at the Evolution meeting in the Convergent/Parallel Evolution session. I self-embargoed myself from evolution meetings for the past few years as a postdoc to immerse myself in fungal cellular and molecular biology. I decided to lift the embargo this year and I couldn't be more excited to catch up with old friends and colleagues and "come home" to Evolution (also I heart Portland!).
