Current Research Projects
  1. The origins and patterns of polyploidy in ferns. I am especially interested in what happens to fern genomes between episodes of whole genome duplication, relative to seed plants. 

  2. Developing genome resources for ferns, including two genome sequencing projects: Azolla and Ceratopteris.

  3. Mitochondrial genomes of ferns 

  4. Developing Target Sequence Capture methods for phylogenetic analysis of ferns using nuclear-encoded genes. In addition to testing phylogenetic hypotheses based on chloroplast genes, data from nuclear genes will be needed to examine the long-term evolutionary effect of hybridization on fern phylogeny

  5. Population genomics of rare species. Using genome-scale genotyping to determine whether rare taxa are distinct from common congeners

  6. Population genomics of wetland ecotypes and taxa
