About Me

My name is Andjin Siegenthaler, I am a postdoctoral researcher in environmental DNA (eDNA) and spatial analysis within the BIOSPACE project, in the Department of Natural Resources (ITC). Within this project, I focus on linking diversity information, obtained via eDNA, with remote sensing data to enhance biodiversity monitoring and nature conservation. My passion for the application of eDNA as an environmental monitoring tool started during my PhD at the University of Salford (UK) where I studied the diet and ecological role of the brown shrimp using eDNA. My areas of interest are: Environmental DNA, terrestrial and marine ecology, remote sensing, big data, and multivariate statistics.
