Profile

I am an aquatic and evolutionary ecologist. I am interested in how the biotic and abiotic environment affects
generation and maintenance of biodiversity on different levels of biological organisation (molecular, individual, population, community).
My research revolves around two main topics:
(1) the effects of global environmental change (e.g. temperature, pollution) on the population genetic and genomic structure and linked phenotypes, using a multidisciplinary approach that integrates methods used in paleolimnology, environmental genetics/genomics, and resurrection ecology, and (2) the factors that mediate the structure and maintenance of diversity in metacommunities, using zooplankton as a model system. A future challenge will be to combine these two fields, applying temporal and spatial scales to community genetics.
