Eric Capo has a Ph.D. in molecular paleoecology from INRAE UMR CARRTEL (Thonon-les-Bains, France) with strong interests in the ecology of freshwater and marine microbial communities. Eric is the founder and coordinator of the society and is currently a post-doc fellow at ICM-CSIC (Barcelona, Spain) and guest researcher at SLU (Uppsala, Sweden).

Marie-Eve Monchamp has a Ph.D. in Environmental Systems Science from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) (Zurich, Switzerland). Her research interests are focussed on the impact of human activities on freshwater biota. She is currently an NSERC postdoctoral fellow at McGill University (Montréal, Canada) where she applies eDNA, sedDNA and eRNA approaches to study lacustrine biodiversity and ecosystem function. Marie-Eve is the leader of the PAGES PaleoEcoGen Working Group.

Kevin Nota is a PhD student at Uppsala university specialising in molecular paleoecology, with the main focus and interest in reconstructing past flora. Within the society, Kevin is responsible for distributing the monthly newsletters and co-organized the first society symposium.

Cecilia Barouillet has a PhD in Biology paleolimnology from Queen's University (PEARL laboratory, Kingston, Canada) and is now post-doc at INRAE UMR CARRTEL (Thonon-les-Bains, France). Her research interests focus on reconstructing the long-term ecological trajectory of lakes and studying changes in lake ecosystems functioning in response to environmental change and anthropogenic stressors. Cecilia is VP at the International Society of Limnology and coordinate actions in the African sedaDNA working group.

Alexandra Rouillard has a Ph.D. in Plant Biology (paleoecology) and is currently a postdoc at UiT The Arctic University of Norway in Tromsø also affiliated with GeoGenetics, GLOBE, at the The University of Copenhagen, Denmark. Her research aims to understand the role of climatic shifts on the diversity and function of Arctic species and ecosystems over a range of timescales using molecular and geochemical proxies from lake sediments. Alex is in charge of promoting our members' outreach and science communication content on sedaDNA.

Kuldeep More has a Ph.D. in Sedimentary Paleogenomics from Curtin University, Perth and his research is focused on assessing the impact of paleo-environmental variabilities on the past ecosystems. He is currently working as a Marie Skłodowska Curie IEF post-doctoral researcher in the AGES group at Centre for Anthropobiology and Genomics of Toulouse (CAGT), France. In the society, Kuldeep is managing informations from new members.

Joanna Pawłowska has a Ph.D. in oceanography from the Institute of Oceanology Polish Academy of Sciences IOPAN). She is currently an assistant professor in the IOPAN, where she runs the environmental DNA lab. Her research interests focus on the application of molecular tools for the assessment of benthic and planktonic ecosystems and for reconstructing past climate and environmental changes. Joanna´s role in the society is keeping up the sedaDNA literature survey.

Trisha Spanbauer has a Ph.D. in geology and biology from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and her research is focused on paleolimnology, with an emphasis on the ecology and evolution of algae. She is currently an assistant professor at the University of Toledo where she runs a sedimentary DNA and a molecular ecology lab. Trisha is responsible for the organization of society seminars.

The student board

The student board is composed by three PhD students working with sedimentary DNA and responsible of the organization of society PhD seminars that are coordinated by Kevin Nota. Check our "Events" page for more information about these seminars.
