I am a plant biologist with a particular interest in the evolution of regulatory mechanisms that allowed the successful radiation of plants on the terrestrial realm. I use diverse taxa, including chlorophytes, charophytes, bryophytes and angiosperms, to investigate how plants adapted and colonised the arid terrestrial surface from a single aquatic ancestor
