Main Research Interests
I study symbiosis between marine invertebrates and chemosynthetic bacteria. My focus lies on investigating the metabolomic profiles of the different partners and the possible metabolic interactions between them. In my research I employ different mass spectrometry techniques such as GC-MS and HPLC-MS as well as stable isotopes incubations.
