Research: My research attention focuses on the evolution and ecology of host- parasite interaction. Questions of special interest are the evolution and maintenance of the virulence of parasites and immunity resistance of the host, as well as the role of the genetic variability for the resulting ecological and evolutionary dynamics. Field and laboratory experiments are indispensable instruments in this work, accompanied, however, by theoretical approaches. At the same time, molecular methods (microsatellites, sequencing) are used to understand the genetic population and/or phylogenic relationships.
Expertise: host-parasite interactions, ecology, evolutionary theory, population dynamics, phylogeny
