Matthias is a Masters Student in the Erasmus Mundus Master Programme in Evolutionary Biology. He is interested in an evolutionary developmental perspective on major transitions in animal evolution. He is especially drawn to working with non-standard model organisms and using a comparative approach. He has worked on gene expression in Drosophila, Tribolium, Glomeris, Parasteatoda and Euperipatoides species, and in our lab looks forward to expanding his repertoire of arthropod embryological experience!
