Simone Immler – PI
Simone is interested in all biological aspects of sexual reproduction in a wide range of organisms and employs theoretical, comparative, experimental and genomics tools to address the many questions that are still unanswered.
Berrit Kiehl – PhD student
Berrit is combining experimental work with RNAseq to study small RNAs in the zebrafish, Drosophila and the ocellated wrasse.
Andreas Sutter – postdoctoral researcher (NERC)
Andreas is working on the role of gamete selection in adaptation to changing environments.
Jean-Charles (Johnny) de Coriolis – research assistant (NERC)
Johnny makes sure, all the fish are healthy and happy and assists with the various projects running in the lab.
Mabel Sydney – PhD student (ARIES DTP)
Mabel is looking at understanding the role of gametic selection in adaptation to a changing environment and trying to disentangle genetic from epigenetic effects.
