In my research I investigate the ecological and evolutionary forces that drive and maintain biodiversity both at the intra- and inter-specific level. Specifically, I use a combination of field observations, controlled experiments and molecular tools in a population genetic framework to understand the evolutionary processes maintaining plant diversity. The main focus of my present work is on the processes that maintain diversity in plant-pathogen interactions in the wild.
