My research focuses on symbiotic bacteria that cannot live outside of their eukaryotic host cell. My main interests are in finding out how these tight associations affect genome evolution, determining genetic factors involved in host interactions, finding out how the host responds and exploring the diversity of symbiotic bacteria in nature. My group use mostly genome sequencing and comparative genomics to try to answer these questions, but we also investigating symbiotic phenotypes in the lab and collect arthropods from nature.
