Research interests

  • Evolution, systematics, species concept, host specificity, co-evolutionary relations with host plants, and biogeography of phytopathogenic fungi (mostly smut fungi) on the worldwide scale.
  • Biodiversity and systematics of extremophilic fungi.
  • Endophytes and their interactions with early diverging plants.
