My main research focus concentrates on the effects of past and current changes in environmental conditions (in large and local scales) on species and species assemblages. Hereby I work on population structures, phylogenies, integrative taxonomy and speciation using microsatellites, mitochondrial as well as nuclear markers, and comparative transcriptomics.

 

As model organism I chose the Insect order Odonata because to their significant role in describing and evaluating fresh water systems as well as the health of ecosystems in general.
