I am very happy to have recently had two new papers published.

The first paper was based on a student research project that I supervised in Oxford. Undergraduate student Louis Bell-Roberts did some great work on the evolution of insect endosymbioses, and how they relate to host insect diet, which we wrote up for publication in Proceedings of the Royal Society B.

The second paper was a massive, multinational collaborative project, led by Brian Steidinger and Kabir Peay in Stanford. Compiling data from over a million forest plots, including millions and millions of trees, we were able to generate the first global map of tree root endosymbioses, which we published in Nature recently. I mostly contributed to the N2-fixation part of data and analyses, and it was great fun to work on such a big and ambitious project.

All papers are also available as pdfs on my publication page.
