Research interests

My research interests focus on the investigation of historical diversity patterns and processes, both at the level of species composition and within single species. I employ molecular genetic data obtained from both recent and ancient material, particularly from lake sediment cores and other environmental samples (eDNA). Methodological focus is on environmental DNA metabarcoding and ancient DNA analysis of species, as well as intraspecific dynamics.
