I’m a microbiologist working on microbial communities and microbe-host interactions. My main work revolves around microbiomes related to insect farming and investigating dynamics in insect mass-rearing.
Besides that, I am actively contributing to research activities taking place in the Microbial Resource Management group at the Department of Microbiology and the Molecular Ecology group at the Department of Ecology of the University of Innsbruck.
My interests include microbiome research, data science and visualization, and making processes more efficient in a sustainable way.
