Curriculum


Awards

  • Volkswagen Foundation Ph.D. fellowship (awarded 2009), Evolutionary Biology thematic impetus. Topic: Retention and functional adaptation of duplicated genes during the evolution of plant stress response
  • Annual Bernhard-Rensch Prize in Evolution and Biocomplexity (2008, MSc thesis) sponsored by the Volkswagen foundation

Research Interests

  • Arthropod comparative genomics, including sequence and domain evolution, expansion and contraction of gene functional classes, microsatellite evolution and others
  • The role of gene duplication events in plant evolution: how duplicated genes are retained and facilitate functional adaptation, in particular during the evolution of the plant stress response
