Short presentation

I am interested in the symbiotic relationships that exist between different protist species and those between protists and prokaryotes up to the derivation of cell organelles. I am combining diverse lab techniques (e.g., electron microscopy, FISH) with bioinformatics to investigate the origins of the symbioses and the functional/metabolic role of the partners.
