I am interested in the molecular underpinnings of diversity in populations and species – how populations adapt, which role the genomic architecture plays, or how gene flow can influence divergence – and I am generally excited about evolutionary aspects, ecology, and conservation biology. Yet, my scientific expertise includes a rather wide collection of biological topics – from developmental biology and neurobiology (which I studied during my master's thesis), to cell biology and the regulation and role of autophagy (my PhD thesis).
