Research Focus:

I am actively interested in all research topics of the Molecular Ecology group.


Main Projects:
  • Filling gaps in cryptic-biodiversity research: evolutionary profile building on multi-source species delimitation (funded by: FWF, Austrian Science Fund)
  • Alpine endemism: integrative taxonomy and faunal history of Megabunus harvestmen (funded by: Province of Bozen, South Tyrol)
  • The Wolbachia status of a cryptic ant species complex and its implications for host species evolution (funded by: TWF, Tyrolean Science Foundation)
  • Summiteers of evolution: pilot study on the influence of altitude on the evolution of Alpine millipedes (funded by: Hypo Tirol Bank and University of Innsbruck)
