Biography

I am interested in understanding evolutionary processes, developing tools that can identify such processes or can improve the comparative analysis of genomes. I enjoy working on both the biological aspect of these questions as well as on the computational aspect.

The main research areas that I am currently working on:

  • Identifying pathogenicty related effector genes in Fusarium spp. (mainly FOSC) by correlating phenotype and genotype
  • Exploring the potential of pangenomes (using PanTools)
  • Improving visualizations tools for comperative genomics and phylogenetics

 

My PhD project focused on the evolution of the mitochondrial genome in Fusarium. I worked with selective genome assembly, which led to the development of the wrapper program GRAbB. In addition, for one of the papers, I have written an automated version of the GCPSR (enealogical Concordance Phylogenetic Species Recognition) method which is also available on GitHub.
