Research Interests

My research seeks to understand fundamental processes in plant reproduction and evolution using genetics and genomics. My current research is focused on studying the interacting forces of mating systems, interspecific hybridisation and polyploidy in the evolution of taxonomically ‘difficult’ genera, in particular Senecio (ragworts, Asteraceae) and Sorbus (whitebeams, rowans and wild service trees, Rosaceae).
