Welcome to Ian’s site

I am a biologist and professor at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland, working on the mycorrhizal symbiosis. Here you will find details about the mycorrhizal symbiosis, why the symbiosis is of worldwide importance, how we apply our basic lab-based genetics research to make globally important crops grow better, and why we work in Colombia

I am also a keen photographer and so you will also find lots of photos, especially from Colombia

I hope you enjoy this site ……….
