Research Information:

I principally use two teleost research models, zebrafish (Danio rerio) and rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) to comparatively study energy metabolism, using an integrated approach. This approach covers molecular, cellular and organismal aspects of energy metabolism. A current research focus lies on the elucidation of epigenetic origins of metabolic phenotypes and changes thereof in response to changing environments (climate change, contaminants) across ontogeny and generations, which in contrast to mammalian research models remains largely uncharacterized in lower vertebrates.
