Animal-microbe interactions

  • Marine ecology
  • (Co-)evolution and diversity of host-beneficial symbionts
  • Chemosynthetic endo- and ectosymbioses
  • Eukaryote-Prokaryote-Virus interactions


I am currently working on the sulphor-oxidizing gamma-proteobacterium Candidatus Thiosymbion, which occurs as an endosymbiont of gutless oligochetes and nematodes of the genus Astomonema, as well as in an ectosymbiotic relationship with stilbonematid nematodes.

Using comparative genomics I try to shed light on the evolutionary history of these symbioses.
