My research is focused on genomic characters such as genome size, chromosome organization, and DNA repeats (https://www.kew.org/science/our-science/projects/uncovering-the-genomic-diversity-of-plants) to (i) understand the origin, evolution and biological significance of the immense diversity of genomic characters across land plants, and (ii) determine how these characters impact at the whole plant level to influence how, when, and where plants grow and respond to global change.
I also coordinate the Plant DNA C-values database (https://cvalues.science.kew.org/) which comprises the most comprehensive compilation of genome size data for land plants and algae available on the internet. The latest release 7.1 (April 2019) contains data for over 12,000 species.
