  • JAE postdoctoral
  • Speciality:


  • Geographical region:Woridwide, Macaronesia
  • Line of research: Fungi and bryophytes
  • Professional profile

    My interests are in fungal molecular phylogeny and biogeography. As a postdoctoral fellow, I am currently involved in the biogeographic study of Macaronesian corticiaceos (Basidiomycota). The subject of my Ph.D was molecular phylogeny and biogeography of Amanita and Oudemansiella s. l. I have also investigated the molecular phylogeny of commercial Chinese truffles and their relatives. As a research fellow at the University of Hawaii, USA, I studied diversity and biomedical potential of marine fungi.
