in the group focuses on understanding
the various evolutionary processes that have shaped the composition and
evolution of genomes. I am interested in understanding the dynamics of genetic
variation in populations as well as the underlying causes of differences among
individuals by using modern approaches, including molecular biology,
bioinformatics and statistical modelling.
recent focus is on viral evolution and in particular, endogenous retroviruses
(ERVs) that constitute a substantial fraction of vertebrate genomes – I am
interested in understanding the circumstances under which
ERVs successfully colonize genomes, and their subsequent impact on the
I am always looking for interested PhD students and postdocs. If you
would like to apply for a NERC fellowship, Marie Curie fellowship, or have the
possibility of a studentship, I would welcome discussing you joining the lab.
Please email me if you would like to discuss.
