I am a mycologist with a passion for developing fungal applications that benefit humanity. In my research, I use evolutionary genomics to understand how fungal symbioses are established, maintained, and evolve over time. I am a Professor in the Botany and Plant Pathology Department at Oregon State University in Corvallis, OR, USA.
I am fascinated by the questions: how do fungi interact with the world, and how can they help us?
Research on Fungal diversity and evolution
- Director of my research lab, see Uehlinglab.com.
- OSC Fungal Herbarium Curator
- Mycologist for the Psilocybin Advisory Board
Instructor for Mycology (BOT 461/561) and Population Genomics (BDS 477/577)
My research offers insight into how fungi function in symbioses with bacteria, plants, and humans and how fungal genomes evolve as a consequence. My research has been supported by The National Science Foundation, The Department of Energy, NASA, and various Mycological Societies. I am currently conducting research in the following areas:
1) Fungal microbiome research
2) Pacific NorthWest fungal diversity
3) Human fungal pathogen evolution
