Research lines

Tremellomycetes (Agaricomycotina, Basidiomycota, Fungi) are a very diverse and widespread group of fungi, among the oldest lineages of Agaricomycotina. Many species live in association with other fungi and are very specific regarding host. Aside of investigating the real diversity of this group, I am interested in detecting coevolutionary patterns related to the main diversification events in the evolution of Tremellomycetes.
