Fields of research and interest:

  • LC/MS-based screening (HPLC/QTOF-ESI-HR-MS and HPLC/ion-trap-MS) for bioactive metabolites from invertebrates (insects and other arthropods) and invertebrate-associated microorganisms.
  • Chemical characterisation and mass-spectrometric structural elucidation of bioactive metabolites found.
  • Bioactive metabolites from nematophagous, insecticidal and fungicolous fungi.
  • Non-ribosomal peptide antibiotics (peptaibiotics) from fungi.
