::Research Area::

In my lab, most research focuses on grass-endophyte interactions, including lawn grasses and grasses grown in natural grassland. For lawn grasses, we are interested in the benefits and involved mechanisms obtained by the host grass from endophyte infection. For natural grassland grasses, we are interested in how mutualistic interactions affect population dynamics, community structure and evolution.
