I am an ecologist who is not only interested in the effects of a changing environment on ecosystem processes, but also very much in the mechanisms behind it.  To get a better understanding of how the diverse impacts of climate change affect soil organisms and their activities, I focus on soil invertebrates, which are key players in many ecosystem processes but are often overlooked by scientists.

In my current postdoc work, I am involved in studying the effects of thawing permafrost and changes in frost-induced soil mixing on carbon dynamics. My research focuses mainly on the community composition and activity of springtails and soil mites, and their effects on carbon turnover. Furthermore, I am interested in how alterations in climate and vegetation dynamics affect soil invertebrates and their contribution to ecosystem processes.
