Research

Environmental Biochemistry

Our research concentrates on basic understanding of molecular mechanisms and extent of microbial pollutant transformations.

Drinking Water Microbiology

We focus on the basic understanding of microbial ecology and microbiological processes from source to tap in order to address practical everyday questions with respect to the treatment and distribution of high quality drinking water.

Molecular Microbial Ecology

The focus of our research group is on basic questions on bacterial ecology and evolution.

Microbial Community Assembly

Our research focuses on deriving and testing general ecological principles that address the causes and consequences of microbial diversity.

Groundwater Microbiology

We explore the microbial ecology of karstic aquifers and investigate the structure of natural microbial communities in the water column and the biofilm, their contribution to turnover rates and their influence on the water quality of this important drinking water resource.
