PostDoc in the group of Prof. Walter Salzburger
My current research aims to clarify the evolution of the chemosensory gene repertoire in vertebrates, which include olfactory and taste receptors, with a particular focus on cichlids of the Lake Tanganyika. Chemoreception plays a major role in the survival and reproductive success of fish, being involved in feeding, predator avoidance, and reproduction. I am using a combination of genomic, transcriptomic, morphological and ecological data to further investigate what drove the evolution of these genes and evaluate their contribution to niche specialization and speciation.
