new job… new blog

I’ve just started my new job at the University of Melbourne, in the School of Botany and thought that was enough of a reason to start a new blog.

I’m on a fellowship funded by the Australian Research Council and during the coming four years, I will be studying the evolutionary dynamics of algae. The project aims to characterize how ecological niches evolve and document how trace metal utilization changes over time and across the algal tree of life. If you’d like to read more about the project, have a look at the project page on the lab’s web site.

The purpose of this blog is to keep a record of ideas and activities as I’m making progress with this project. I look forward to receiving your reactions, especially if they can steer me in the right direction or just keep me sane while I tackle the challenges ahead of me.
