PhD in Evolutionary Biology, expertise in Molecular Biology and Transposable Elements
I am a biologist interested in the evolution and biology of transposable genetic elements (TEs), fascinating molecular entities which are found in, and often make up great proportions of, the genomes of virtually all living things on Earth. My work has involved collaborating with researchers from varied fields such as: -community ecology -computer science -philosophy of biology These different perspectives, combined with synthesizing the traditional TE literature with other sub-fields in evolutionary biology, has given me a novel view on how to think about TEs and the way they interact with the organisms they parasitize and co-evolve with. I'm interested in a great deal of things con...
