About Copenhagen University

With over 40,000 students and more than 9,000 employees, the University of Copenhagen is one of the largest institutions of research and education in the Nordic countries.

The purpose of the University – to quote the University Statute – is to ’conduct research and provide further education to the highest academic level’.
Approximately one hundred different institutes, departments, laboratories, centres, museums, etc., form the nucleus of the University, where professors, lecturers and other academic staff, as well as most of the technical and administrative personnel, carry out their daily work, and where teaching takes place.

    I am interested in the evolutionary origin and stability of symbioses, including conflict and cooperation within beneficial symbiotic associations (mutualisms). My work focuses on host-symbiont interactions and the coevolutionary histories of fungus-growing insect-microbe associations. My current main model system is the fungus-farming termites, which are dominant plant decomposers in (sub)tropical Sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia. The termites owe this massive success to their advanced symbiosis with Termitomyces fungi, which they rear for food, but also gut bacteria that complement the processes taken care of by the food fungus. Using a combination of microbiological, phylogenetic, genomic, and metagenomic approaches, we are exploring the plant biomass and antibiotic/probiotic roles of symbionts associated with fungus-growing termites, to understand how natural selection has shaped and optimised the multipartite collaboration through division of labor within this ancient stable association.
