My primary research interests and experience are in the ecological and quantitative genetics of hybridization, speciation, invasiveness, and plant reproductive systems. My early research focused on impacts of an invasive population history on the self-incompatibility (SI) mating system of Senecio squalidus (Oxford ragwort). I then investigated the evolution of a SI mating system across an incompletely reproductively isolated species boundary in closely related species as well as the selective forces and genetic targets responsible for divergent ecological speciation in the Senecio study system. Further research in Begonia and Arabidopsis have complemented my interests in speciation, population, and quantitative genetics while giving me experience dealing with new genetic technologies. My current research lines at Durham include: the genetic basis and evolution of mating system (self-incompatibility and heterostyly) and other adaptive trait variation in the genus Linum (flax/linseed), and the genetic basis of recently developed reproductive barriers between native and invasive Centaurea solstitialis (Yellow starthistle).
