Research Interests

Survival of nucleic acids in Quaternary lacustrine and marine sediments

Developing new molecular tools for paleogenetics

Reconstruction of the ancient lacustrine- and marine microbial diversity, and hence, reconstruction of climate-induced changes of paleoenvironments based on the combined stratigraphic analysis of geolipid biomarkers and preserved fossil ribosomal RNA encoding genes

Reconstruction of ancient and contemporary metabolic processes in lacustrine and marine environments as well as the prokaryotes involved in these processes based on the analysis of modern and preserved functional genes and gene products

Microbial diversity and processes in stratified environments
