member of the steering committee of the DFG Priority Programme “Genomic Basis of Evolutionary Innovations (GEvol)” (SPP 2349).
Associated member of DFG research unit So-Long (FOR2281/2) between Freiburg, Mainz, Münster, Regensburg, Halle, Frankfurt, Groningen and Friborg.
I am interested in understanding evolutionary processes shaping genomes and chromosomes leading to phenotypic innovation and hence biodiversity. In particular I focus on bees and wasps, including social species. For my research, I’m combining aspects of biodiversity, phylogenetics, population genetics, molecular ecology and genetics with state-of-the-art genomics and bioinformatics approaches, including third generation sequencing, optical and genetic mapping.
