GEE welcomes Dr Hernán Burbano

10 August 2019

GEE is delighted to announce the arrival of a new member of academic staff, Dr Hernán Burbano, Associate Professor of Ancient Plant Genomics, who joined the GEE Centre for Life’s Origins and Evolution (CLOE) last week.


Hernán joins us from the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology in Tuebingen, Germany, where he did a postdoc integrating plant evolutionary genomics and ancient DNA before going on to establish his own group in 2014.

Hernán uses a retrospective approach to address a broad range of questions in the evolution of plants and their pathogens.
