Main Focus

My research interests include the evolution of proteins, especially ion transport proteins, and its links to the evolution of larger-scale systems, from cells to ecosystems. Here, I am involved in the eco-evolutionary studies of a protistan compost community.

In addition, together with members of the Ocean EcoSystems Biology laboratory at GEOMAR, I study the deep-sea sediment microbial community, applying protein phylogenetics to trace its specific responses to the input of organic matter.
