Welcome to my web page. I am a lecturer in the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Essex. My research interest focuses, mainly, on the origin and evolution of eukaryotic regulatory systems. Currently I am working in the impact of microRNA emergence in the evolution of regulatory networks.

Do you have an interest in evolutionary genetics? Would you like to live in a lovely area (somewhat) near the seaside? Will you join me in this crusade to understand the origin of gene regulatory mechanisms? If you answered yes to all three questions drop me a line or just come and visit to discuss any possibility. You’ll be very welcomed.
