Research Focus

Microbial communities as central elements of marine ecosystems show distinct spatiotemporal variability and harbor diverse interactions, shaped by environmental. However, these dynamics in polar waters remain poorly understood, but are essential to characterize for assessing the fate of the future Arctic Ocean.  In my PhD project I will integrate genomic and environmental data to elucidate metabolic and energetic fluxes in Arctic microbial ecosystems.
