Research interests

My research focuses on identifying genetic and genomic signatures of adaptation in host-symbiont interactions. In particular, I am studying the functional evolution of symbiosis in Hyaloperonospora arabidopsidis, Cetraria aculeata, and Hydra viridissima in relation to different climatic conditions.
I am currently working with transcriptome data from these species and trying to identify genes under positive selection. I am using perl and shell scripts for data analysis and different open source software for assembly, annotation, mapping, and SNP analysis.
