We study the evolution and ecology of freshwater biodiversity, focusing on the development and use of genomics and bioinformatics approaches. The scope of our work covers whole-community response to environmental change (insects, fungi, plankton, microbes), lineage diversification, genome evolution, and species-specific gene expression. We play leading roles in the Berlin Center for Genomics in Biodiversity Research and the Alliance for Freshwater Life.
