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.
