I am an evolutionary geneticist interested in uncovering and understanding the diversity of life.
In my PhD I studied hybrid speciation in fish. By means of a yearly transcriptomic time series of wild fish combined with a common garden experiment, I observed how hybridization facilitated rapid local adaptation.
During my postdoc at the Natural History Museum in Stockholm I am working within the Insect Biome Atlas in collaboration with Symbioses Evolution Group to develop and implement novel DNA techniques to describe insect fauna of Sweden. Comprehensive sampling of insects both in time and space will allow us to understand how insect communities are distributed and how they react to changing environment.
Outside of research I have passion for science outreach and bio-hacking. Read more about my current and past projects at https://www.thetangledlines.de/ela/#section0
The team is expanding. We seek dynamic young researchers – students, postdocs, and external collaborators – interested in the study of insect symbioses, whether as a part of the team or in collaboration.
We offer opportunities to join in challenging research in a rapidly developing field, become involved in global collaborations, learn cutting-edge research techniques and acquire transferable skills, while networking with Polish and international colleagues.
Any new funded opportunities will be advertised here. Consider applying for independent funding to work with us, including:
- Polish National Science Centre (NCN) grants suitable for your career stage;
- Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange (NAWA) Ulam Program for international postdocs interested in working in Poland;
- European Commission (Maria Skłodowska-Curie) Individual Fellowships for postdocs;
- European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) fellowships
