Current Project

Currently, I am working as a research assistant in the AufLand research initiative. Among other projects, I am involved in the study of indirect effects of mosquito control on non-target organisms, especially chironomids, using metabarcoding.


Research interest

  • Adaptation of natural populations to anthropogenic stress
  • Evolutionary ecotoxicology
  • Adaptation genomics
  • Eco-evolutionary dynamics
