My research interests are in the areas of chloroplast evolution and algal genomics. As part of my dissertation, I am using a comparative phylogenomics approach to quantify the genetic contribution of Plantae to the chromalveolate algae and evaluate different hypotheses regarding secondary chloroplast evolution in these organisms. I am also evaluating kleptoplastidy (sequestration of temporary chloroplasts stolen from prey) as a model for understanding the early events in chloroplast acquisition.
