I'm a PhD candidate in the Molecular Ecology and Evolution Lab at Lund University, Sweden. My PhD project explores molecular interactions between avian hosts and their microbes. I have a huge passion for science and love to constantly learn new things about nature.
In my research I use molecular techniques and bioinformatic tools to study the evolution of genomes, transcriptomes and microbiomes. In addition to my PhD, I collaborate with colleagues in several interesting projects involving genomics. For more information about my work, please see the Research page.
