Head of Department
In my early years of research, I was involved in establishing the field of environmental DNA (eDNA) and today eDNA is utilised to explore a range of biological and ecological questions from cutting-edge research, environmental monitoring to forensics world wide. Currently my research predominantly focuses on forensic genetics, molecular diagnostics as well as genetic identification and discovery. By metagenomic analysis of DNA and RNA in complex tissue samples, recent and ancient sediments including permafrost I aim to describe the composition, regulation and distribution of genes, microorganism, phage’s, viruses and more.
