About Me

Function

PhD student in the group biodiversity dynamics

Research interests
My research interests lie in the evolutionary mechanisms of radiation and speciation, and their counterparts which prevent taxa from diverging. Even though a lot of research has been done in this area, many questions remain unanswered. Novel techniques like next-generation sequencing provide new opportunities to address these questions on a new level. African cichlids proved to be an ideal system to speciation and biodiversity research, as they show unusually fast radiation rates and several stages of speciation are present within the same fish groups. To gain further insights into the mechanisms that increase, maintain or decrease biodiversity, I combine the well established study system of Lake Victoria cichlids with the investigation of younger fish communities in smaller, nearby lakes with different ecological conditions.
