In addition to Sperm Biology (sperm metabolism, sperm ecology) and Mito-Nuclear Interactions, and some very cautious excursions into Ecological Lipidology (a name that we coined), I am broadly interested in insects (e.g., see here the lovely bedbugs in a close-up video). I also represent these topics in teaching. More details on research interests on this site, on publications here, and here. And, I have an interest in Cultural Entomology.
2014 – 2019 I held one of ten Open Topics Tenure Track Positions supported by the German Excellence Initiative at TU Dresden.
