I am interested in the evolution of symbioses. In particular, I've studied lichens of the order Peltigerales, trying to understand the patterns of associations between symbionts. I'm also interested in systematics and species delimitation of lichen-forming fungi, and macroevolution, phylogenetics and genomics of fungi in general. I got my PhD at the University of Liège (Belgium) in November 2014 and I am a postdoctoral associate in the Lutzoni lab (Department. of Biology, Duke University) since January 2015.
