Professional experience

I use molecular methods and genome wide approaches to solve applied questions in free-living non-model species. After several years of research in developmental biology and epigenetics, using Drosophila and C.elegans, I now focus on the round goby. With a combination of field- and labwork, I work on the role of epigenetic processes in plasticity and adaptation.

Watch round goby in the field:
