- Metabarcoding method development -

test text

Hey there!

I develop DNA based methods for assessing biodiversity, which I apply together with many collaborators to the most pressing ecological questions and challenges of our time. Currently I am developing the Mobile Biodiversity Lab, a Nanopore Sequencing based backpack laboratory for detection of fish from Environmental DNA.



Upcoming conferences and events you can meet me:

  • Currently no traveling due to the ongoing pandemic.

  • But you can Invite me as a speaker for online events! = )

Watch a video of my recent metabarcoding work, demonstrating the feasibility of this method for routine monitoring of freshwater macroinvertebrates. The accompanying publication is available at Methods in Ecology and Evolution.

You can find an overview my other publications here.
