About me

I am a limnologist and evolutionary ecologist. My research focuses on the responses of freshwater organisms and their adaptive ability to the effects of anthropogenic impacts on lentic freshwater ecosystems. It spans various levels of biological organization and complexity, includes molecular, analytical and conceptual approaches, and covers laboratory, mesocosm as well as field experiments.
