Marco Aurelio Marangoni (Postdoc)  will start soon...

Kevin Nota (PhD student) is from Holland and has recently started working in our group. He is using shotgun sequencing analysis of serially sampled datasets from environmental DNA extracted from lake and peat sediments from northern and southern Europe and relate biodiversity change with climate change.

Anne von Woerkom (Internship student) has just started working with us in the ancient DNA lab on on project investigating the glacial survival of Norway Spruce in northern Europe.

Giulia Ghirardello and Alessadro Nobile  (Internship students) are both working in the modern DNA lab on on project investigating the origin of Styrax officinalis from Italy.


Engy Ahmed (Postdoc)  was working on a SciLifeLab funded project on metagenomics from lake sediments.

Lu Han (Helen) (PhD student) together with Engy she was working on metagenomcs from lake sediments. She was also involved on other projects dealing with the analysis of ancient DNA from other plant remains.

Masoumeh Aahmoudi Shamsabad (PhD student) is originally from Iran. She has been working with us for 7 months conducting part of her PhD work in Sweden. She worked on the phylogeny and phylogeography of the Iran-Turanian species-complex Achantophyllum squarrosum.
