My research aims to identify the mechanisms that underpin the evolution of complex phenotypes, such as placentation. My research integrates genomics, developmental biology, and ecophysiology to understand how mutation and selection result in the evolution of complex traits.

My current projects use genetic, genomic, and cell biology techniques to identify how complex components of pregnancy have evolved. This includes the evolution of placental nutrient transfer, maternal – fetal signalling, and maternal regulation of the immune system. This research is conducted in a comparative framework to identify if complex placental functions have evolved in independent lineages using the same or different genetic mechanism.
