Specialisms

Red algal taxonomy, ecology and conservation. Genomic approaches. Response to environmental change., evolution, life histories

Summary

My research is in the biology of marine algae, specializing in red algal taxonomy, life histories, evolution, ecology and conservation. Current research includes genomic approaches to macroalgae and microbiomes, seaweeds in a time of rapid environmental change and taxonomy, phylogenetics and conservation of algae.
