    Professional Biography: I am a Senior Tutor in the Institute of Natural & Mathematical Sciences at Massey University, Auckland, New Zealand and formerly a FRST Postdoctoral Fellow in Dist. Prof. Paul Rainey's research group in Auckland. I also collaborate with Prof. Jack Heinemann et al at Canterbury University, Christchurch, New Zealand. My research focuses on understanding how organisms adapt to changing environments, using the bacterium Pseudomonas fluorescens as a model, and the spread and emergence of antibiotic resistance.

    Research Interests: The evolutionary genetics of adaptive divergence in experimental populations of Pseudomonas fluorescens; in particular, the genotypic and phenotypic bases of 'fuzzy spreader' fitness. The evolution of bet-hedging strategies in microbial populations; in particular, bistable (epigenetic, stochastic) switching between phenotypes in Pseudomonas fluorescens and how evolution may "tune" phenotypic switch rate to that of the environment. see http://evolution.massey.ac.nz/gayle.html
