I am a mycologist specialised in the taxonomy of Aspergillus, Penicillium, Talaromyces and other moulds from the natural and built environment. My research focus includes their biodiversity, ecology, phylogenetics, nomenclature and identification with a particular interest in taxonomically robust ecological and biodiversity studies.
