Research Interests

My lab is part of the University of Hull Evolutionary Biology Group and investigates problems in evolutionary genetics using DNA and bioinformatic technologies. I’m interested in comparative genomics, large scale phylogenetics and molecular evolution. I’m particularly interested in the way in which the evolutionary forces of recombination, selection, mutation and drift influence genomic content. We also work on projects using phylogenetics and DNA barcoding to better understand biodiversity and the speciation process.

Some projects currently underway in my laboratory:

Gene copy number variation and cichlid adaptive radiations

The genomics of asexual reproduction in nematodes

Comparative genomics and the evolution of genome content

Bioinformatic pipelines, phylogenetics, and SGS data

Phylogeny and phylogeography of East African Tilapia

Phylogeography of North African Lizards and Gekkos

DNA barcoding of agriculturally important species
