I'm currently a Lecturer in the School of Biological Sciences at Bangor University. My main area of research concerns the role of gene and genome duplication in vertebrate evolution. Past models for this have included basal (non-teleost) ray-finned fish such as Polypterus, gars and bowfin and cartilaginous fish including the lesser spotted catshark (Scyliorhinus canicula) and little skate (Leucoraja erinacea). My current research is focused on determining the function of the enigmatic Pdx2 gene, which has been retained in parallel in only a few vertebrate lineages and investigations of the role of gene duplication in the evolution of snake venom.
