I’m interested in eco-evolutionary dynamics in complex systems and the evolution of sex in an ecological context.

Responsibilities

I’m interested in the eco-evolutionary dynamics of a tripartite system of host-virus-virophage. In addition, I seek to disentangle the relevance of eco-evo dynamics on ecological risk assessments.

Responsibilities

I am interested in combining both the fields of ecology and evolution into my research. During my PhD I aim to disentangle the eco-evolutionary dynamics of different species interactions using the algae Chlorella variabilis as the focal species. Following an experimental approach I will look at population dynamics and evolutionary adaptations, supported by genomic analyses and ecological modeling.

Responsibilities

I am interested in the eco-evo dynamics of host-parasite systems, with a focus on parasite evolution. I will use an algae-virus system to investigate how evolutionary constraints and community context shape the evolution of virus populations, and how this in turn affects the community.

Responsibilities

My research focuses on the interplay of ecological and evolutionary processes in eukaryotic algae and viruses. By using experimental evolution, I aim to advance our understanding of how environmental complexity affects the pace and trajectory of rapid adaptation to changing environments.
