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


I am interested in microbial ecology and my research aims to improve our understanding of how microbial communities are shaped by their host, the environment and/or by anthropogenic impacts across different geographic and temporal scales. To approach these subjects I like to combine field-based and experimental approaches and use molecular and statistical tools.

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