Research focus on the investigation of microbial groups involved in the uptake of atmospheric trace gases, especially methane, and the impact of global warming and land use change on the activity of these microorganisms. Special interest in designing and applying cultivation-independent molecular techniques to link phylogeny to function regarding microbial groups and communities (e.g. single cell genomics, metagenomics, SIP, FISH).
