Welcome to my homepage!


I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Institute of Hydrobiology, TU Dresden and the Department of River Ecology, Helmholtz Center for Environmental Research (UFZ), embedded in the
Center for Advanced Water Research (CAWR).

My broad research interests reside in the intersection of molecular ecology and evolutionary biology with a focus on freshwater ecosystems.

I make use of taxonomy, population-genetic and (meta)-genomic approaches as well as experimental evolution in micro- and mesocosm scale seeking to better understand evolutionary processes driving population dynamics and diversity. Please have a look on my Research page to get an idea of the projects I am involved in.
