I am a molecular biologist and a research fellow in the Fritz-Laylin lab. Chytrid fungi are promising systems for studying fungal and animal evolution, but molecular genetic studies in chytrids are currently limited by the lack of genetically tractable model organisms and molecular tools for their genetic modification. To overcome these constraints, my work focuses on developing and adapting methods for genetic manipulation of chytrids.
