  • Research Interests (300 words)
    I use a combination of DNA sequences and fossil records to study the evolutionary history of plants. Using paleoclimate models, I am particularly interested in how plant diversity respond to major climate upheavals in the past ~65 million years, which may shed light on the potential impact of current global warming on plant communities.

That would be what we expect. But we need to make sure this is not due to infertile spores. Do you observe any germination in positive controls?
