I investigate environmental DNA (eDNA) and use metabarcoding to unravel fish and cephalopod communities in the Deep Ocean and their role in trophic interactions with a heavy focus on deep-diving cetaceans. Additionally, I use deep-sea observation systems with low-light cameras and optical lures to film deep-sea pelagic fauna, in particular cephalopods.
