I am interested in aquatic systems, biodiversity and genomics. My current research focusses on population genomics of two key baltic phytoplankton species over a time period of ~ 8,000 years. I want to find possible adaptations to changing evironment by targeting genomic regions (SNPs, variations) of interest using hybridisation enrichment. I work with already available recent genomic data to screen for such variations.

My research is part of the project "PhytoArk" , funded by the Leibniz Association and the funding programme "Collaborative Excellence".
