I am an evolutionary geneticist at the University of Hull, UK. My lab uses phylogenetic and bioinformatic approaches to better understand genomes, evolutionary processes, and biodiversity.

A main interest of my lab is in the processes that determine genome content, structure and change. To what extent do the primary forces of evolution (recombination, effective population size, mutation and natural selection) cause differences in genome content between different taxa and lineages of...

Most of my research projects involve evolutionary analysis of DNA sequence data, from phylogenetics to comparative genomics. Although phylogenetic approaches are widespread in many areas of biology they are largely underused for very large-scale sequence datasets and the analysis of genome-scale data.  ...

How do recombination and reproductive mode determine genome content and architecture? We are carrying a large NERC-funded comparative genomics project to sequence nematode genomes with multiple independent losses of meiosis. ...

Much of my research takes a phylogenetic approach to biological questions. I am especially interested in very large scale analyses and tools to automate the path from sequences to annotated trees in a reproducible way. The image is Darwin's first evolutionary tree from his 1837...
