Kirsten Bomblies

Dr. Bomblies started her research career as a research assistant, before embarking on a PhD studying the history of maize domestication at the University of Wisconsin. After this, she worked as a postdoc at the Max Plank Institute for Developmental Biology in Tübingen studying the evolution of autoimmunity in plants. Since 2009 she has managed her lab at Harvard University where she initiated her work on the evolution of meiosis in response to habitat change and genome duplication, which she will continue at the John Innes Centre.
