I am interested in microbial ecology in a broad context. I used to study bacteria, protists and fungi using different approach and methods including microcosm experiments, microscopy, molecular and bioinformatic methods. My PhD work was focused on Arctic eukaryotic microorganisms. I examined discrepancies in total and active fungal communities in relation to future climate change scenario. I researched root-associated fungi and their mediation of the abiotic conditions on plants. I studied year-round seasonal patterns of community-level gene expression of pelagic protists. In my current position I am exploring links and microbial interactions between microorganisms performing nitrification and methane oxidation.
