Area of Interest

I am a community ecologist with a keen interest in uncovering the ecological and evolutionary mechanisms that drive biodiversity. My current research primarily focuses on plant-associated microbial communities with a specific interest in the mechanisms behind microbial community assembly and eco-evolutionary dynamics, and their importance for ecosystem functions.

We are currently looking for postdoctoral researchers and PhD students. If you are interested in joining my research group, please contact me.
