Associate Professor – University of Gothenburg
I am currently employed as a Senior Curator of fungi and my research is focused on the diversity, systematics and evolution of ectomycorrhizal agarics, particularly Inocybaceae and Hygrophorus. I did my PhD thesis on skin-like, corticioid fungi with russuloid characteristics and is currently also involved in projects on the taxonomy and systematics of the saprotrophic dark-spored agaric genus Psathyrella and the puffball family Lycoperdaceae. I use DNA sequence data to infer phylogenetic relationships among taxa and for tracing character evolution.
