    My research focuses on interactions, or symbioses, formed between plants and fungi. I am particularly interested in the molecular mechanisms that determine whether a given interaction will be beneficial or detrimental. This is investigated using a variety of approaches, including gene replacement of predicted symbiotic regulators, and high throughput RNA sequencing of symbiotic mutants.

Then, I joined to the Professor Robert Roeder’s Lab at Rockefeller University to extend my studies in the transcriptional regulation of eukaryotic genome with regard to the p53 tumor suppressor pathway. Currently I have three major research topics that are relevant to basic cancer biolgoy and biochemistry.

    Our research focuses on understanding the nature of plant speciation and diversification using a variety of approaches.  We use molecular phylogenetics to test ideas of species relationships, taxonomy, biogeography, and character evolution.  We also use morphological and molecular tools to understand different evolutionary processes affecting plant speciation, including hybridization and polyploidy (whole genome doubling) and plant mating systems.  A recurrent theme of our research is to assess and understand the repeatability of evolution and its effects on morphological and genomic level traits.

Prior to this she was an ARC Future Fellow and Senior Research Fellow at the Ian Wark Research Institute at the University of South Australia. She is a physical chemist with expertise in colloid and surface chemistry. She uses nanomaterials to modify the chemistry of drop and bubble surfaces. This strategy enables her to control the structure, stability and flow of soft materials. Her findings have been applied in food and pharmaceutical products and in drilling fluids.
