About

My primary scientific focus is Raman spectroscopy of biological materials and geo-biological systems.

I am interested in analysis of biomolecules from microorganisms to higher plants, especially in the context of various environmental stress factors.

One of my leading research topics is focused on extreme desert environments, responses of desert microorganisms (especially phototrophic) to stress factors like UV-radiation, extreme dryness or salinity.
