I am fascinated by the evolution and diversity of plants, especially with regards to how these have been influenced by humans over time. I like challenges and get enthusiastic when it comes to investigating these complex biological puzzles. In April 2016 I started my PhD research at the University of Zurich within the Marie Curie ITN MedPlant.

Plants have such ingenious way to evolve within their environment.

I am fascinated by the evolution and diversity of plants, especially with regards to how these have been influenced by humans over time. I like challenges and get enthusiastic when it comes to investigating these complex biological puzzles.

My academic background is in molecular systematics and evolution in plants. In my MSc thesis, I have worked on the evolutionary relationship and biogeographic history among 31 species of North American Astereae (Asteraceae). Presently I am collaborating in a project on DNA barcoding and metabarcoding of terrestrial tuberous orchids traded as salep in Asia Minor.
