Om mig

My Research

Currently, my research is focussed on comparing the risks and benefits of hybridization for adaptation to changing and stressful environments. In order to model this process, I am utilising Saccharomyces cerevisiae (Baker's yeast). I hope to gain understanding of not only the process of adaptation to environmental change itself, but also investigate the genomic changes which underlie this adaptation process. In addition to this, I also hope this system will provide a comparable model with which to investigate the effects of hybridization in the face of rapid environmental change, such as will occur with the advent of Climate Change.
