Expertise: Evolution and Development

Our research focuses on evolutionary developmental biology across the land plants.
We are investigating the evolution of morphological novelties with a particular focus on leaves, flowers, fruits and seeds.
We are interested in the genetic networks underlying the development of these organs, the origin of those networks and how they evolved to give the morphological diversity present in the land plants.
