Specialization: 

I did bachelor's and master's in the field of membrane biology with focus on siganlisation by cAMP. For Ph.D. degree I decided to study secondary metabolites of cyanobacteria with particular interest in their ecophysiology. Within this still rather broad field I have focused on phenomenon of siderophore production and their possible roles in resource competition or colaboration under iron limited conditions.

Most often I work with high-performance liquid chromatography in combination with high-resolution mass spectrometry (HPLC-HRMS/MS), bioinformatic analysis focused on identification of gene clusters encoding biosynthesis of secondary metabolites, spectrophotometric analysis of siderophore-iron binding or molecular biology methods for cloning long fragments of DNA (Gibson clonin, Transformation associated recombination - TAR)
