I'm an evolutionary biologist, mainly interested in how populations evolve in single species or multispecies context.
Currently, I'm doing a PhD, working in the labs of Florian Altermatt, Andreas Wagner and Emanuel A. Fronhofer. I research evolution during range expansions, focussing on how the presence or absence of abiotic gradients, asexual or sexual reproduction and gene flow alter evolutionary dynamics. In order to do so, I combine experimental evolution using protist microcosms, whole genome sequencing and individual based models.
Outside of science, I enjoy geocaching, cooking (with a special focus on pies and cheesecakes), board games and occasionally brewing some home-made mead.
