Research Interests:

The genomics of symbiotic interactions; extended phenotypes; evolution and function of venom; parasitoid wasps; plant galling wasps.

Profile:

I am interested in the interactions between symbiotic organisms, with a specific focus on how organisms use extended phenotypes to manipulate partner species. Currently, I am focused on the evolution and function of venom in parasitoid wasps and cynipid galling wasps.
