I am interested in the evolutionary transition of free-living organisms into parasitic or symbiotic lifestyles in various microbiomes such as the animal gut or coral reefs. I am currently investigating the genomes of Symbiodiniaceae to identify what led them to colonize sea animals, and what drives them to leave their hosts.
