We are interested in the evolution and ecology of insects and bacterial resistance evolution. This encompasses the evolution of (insect) immunity, antimicrobial peptides, insect-microbe interactions the evolution of complete metamorphosis.

Our group collaborates closely with the labs of Dino McMahon, Sophie Armitage, Uli Steiner and Paul Johnston.

We are also members of the ZIBI Interdisciplinary Center of Infection Biology and Immunity and the Berlin Brandenburg Institute of Advanced Biodiversity Research.
