My research focus

Aquatic microbial ecology has been the overarching topic of my research career. I have been working on deciphering the forces that shape aquatic microbial communities on all kind of aquatic environments from wastewater treatment plants to pristine freshwater springs, from lakes to small rock pools.

I am currently working as an independent researcher at the Limnology programme of the Dep. of Evolution and Genetics of Uppsala University. My main research focus is  understanding how the interaction of viruses and microbes shapes the microbial communities of inland waters.

Besides research, I am engaged in science dissemination through the organisation of diverse outreach activities and I am involved in teaching in both graduate and undergraduate courses.
