Areas of expertise
I am a trained aquatic ecologist with a special interest in microbial nutrient cycling and symbiosis. In my work, I use cnidarians as simple model systems to study the role of metabolic interactions in the maintenance and breakdown of photosymbioses. Thereby, I hope to identify some of the fundamental processes leading to the establishment of endosymbioses and, thus, the evolution of eukaryotic life itself.
