Since August 2022, I am working as a postdoctoral researcher in the HeRo project (principal investigator: Martin Weih), and the IMPULSE project (principal investigator: Alexander Menegat). Here, I am looking into the microbiome of different Swedish crops such as winter wheat, soybean, and lupine. My main interest lies in the occurrence of plant pathogens and beneficial bacteria and fungi in relation to plant variety and management.
I obtained my PhD from Stockholm University in February 2022, in the lab of Katharina Pawlowski. Here I looked at root nodule symbiosis between nitrogen-fixing bacteria Frankia and their host plants from an evolutionary perspective.
I obtained both my master's (2017) and my bachelor's (2015) degrees from Ghent University.
