Research interests

How supernumerary chromosomes are maintained in an organism attracted my attention from the first time I have read about selfish chromosomes, particularly because of the fact that these chromosomes can have negative fitness cost for the organism and still get inherited.

My current PhD work focuses on functional analysis of meiotic drive of female-inherited supernumerary chromosomes in Zymoseptoria tritici. My goal is to unveil the mechanism controlling this peculiar phenomenon.
