Post-docteral Researcher

  • Microbial ecology, community ecology, marine biology
  • Host and sediment associated microbiota
  • Experimental and field based approaches
  • I use molecular and statistical tools to address ecological quesitons
  • Special interest for Seaweeds, Fungi and the North Sea


In general, I am interested in microbial ecology and my research aims to understand how microbial communities are shaped by their host, the environment and/or by anthropogenic impacts across geographic and temporal scales. I like to approach these subjects by combining field-based and experimental approaches.

In the environmental biochemistry group, I study how sediment associated microbiota in North Sea vary in space and time and what the effect is of long-term and intensive fishing methods on the microbial ecology of the North Sea sediment.
