Research interests

My research field is the microbial ecology of anaerobic systems, in particular of contaminated environments and engineered ecosystems. The aim is to identify microbial key players of biogeochemical processes and to elucidate their ecophysiological function in biotechnological processes and microbial ecosystem services.

A major focus of my research is the microbial ecology of anaerobic conversions in open mixed cultures. Community composition and dynamics as well as carbon and energy flow in anaerobic bioreactors are analyzed by means of molecular methods, aiming at understanding the complex metabolic interactions, identifying microbial indicators for process control, and optimizing biotechnological processes or developing novel anaerobic bioprocesses.

Another focus of my research is the microbial ecology of contaminated aquifers. In particular I am interested in the identification of key organisms and syntrophic consortia thriving in anoxic groundwater habitats and the elucidation of anaerobic benzene degradation pathways.
