My research has recently focused on the ways in which symbiotic interactions (plant-mycorrhizal) shape biodiversity, but I retain a wide interest in many ecological and evolutionary questions. My work often has a strong quantitative component and I aim to develop and apply analytical techniques that allow me to accurately test ecological hypotheses. I regularly make use of high-throughput sequencing, phylogenetic information and organism trait data in order to understand the structure of biological communities. In my role as doctoral tutor I provide consultation on study design and analysis to departmental and visiting PhD students. Selected publications are listed below; for my full publication list and CV please see the Estonian Research Portal.
