    I am generally interested in how fungi move - from across landscapes to across continents. I approach questions on dispersal from a biophysical, genetic, genomic, and ecological perspective in order to better understand fungal biogeography and population dynamics. I am also interested in the intersection of microbial biology and intellectual property rights.
