Ph.D., Botany (Mycology), 2004, University of British Columbia.
Dissertation: Exploring the diversity of Ascomycete Fungi: Evolution of mating systems in Pleospora and discovery of new lineages in the Dothideomycetes.

Licence en biologie, Mycology (equivalent to Bachelor of Science with thesis), 1998, University of Lausanne, Switzerland.

Interests:
Fungi are incredibly diverse and abundant, they affect our lives in a multitude of ways, both beneficial and detrimental. Most fungi are microscopic, and little is known about them. My interests are in various aspects of fungal diversity, evolution and taxonomy, and how new discoveries from basic research can be used to solve practical problems caused by fungi. Most recently, I have been working with Verticillium, a small group of plant pathogenic and plant-associated fungi, the publications are available here. Photographs of Verticillium and other microfungi including Botryosphaeria are available here.
