Research topics and interests

Current research topics/interests:

  • Genetic and genomic basis of heavy metal tolerance and associated metal hyperaccumulation in plants.
  • Transposable Elements dynamics in response to challenging and extreme environmental conditions.
  • Transposable Elements regulation and evolution in plants.
  • Comparative Genomics and Transcriptomics in Arabidopsis halleri ecotypes and related species.


  • Previous Research focus: "Evolution and epigenetic regulation of Transposable Elements in Brassicaceae"
  • Ph.D.-thesis: "Repeated evolution of heat responsiveness among Brassicaceae COPIA transposable elements"
  • Diploma thesis: "Natural variation and its constraints: Comparison of chloroplast ascorbate peroxidases in higher plants"

Further Interests

I have a keen interest in muscular physiological, training and supplement science. As a dedicated scientist, I like to stay informed in this field by critically reading research articles within this field. At times, I used my knowledge to consult people in training, nutrition, and supplement science to build and remain a strong and healthy body.

Teachings

I always enjoyed teaching yound and interested students. Sometimes, I may also help you to overthink ideas and get a more simple look at things you probably stuck in thinking. By time, there are open Bachelor and Master positions. Fee free to contact me via Mail or phone.
