Our lab studies evolutionary biology and ecology of Fungi, principally Basidiomycota (mushroom-forming fungi and relatives). Much of our work is focused on molecular systematics and the uses of phylogenetic trees for studying the evolution of morphological and ecological characters.
Other projects involve molecular ecology, evolution of lignin-degrading enzymes, and phyloinformatics.
