Asst. Prof. Dr. Anamaria Štambuk
Welcome to my group. I am a person full of life and happiness.
Meet my team
mag. Dorotea Grbin
I studied Ecology and nature preservation at Faculty of Science, University of Zagreb, where I finished my Master and received a degree (mag. oecol. et prot. nat) in 2013. Currently I am a PhD student, employed at the Department of Zoology from 2014 as a young researcher – assistant. I started my work within the UKF project ''The effects of pollution on rapid evolution and ecological change in the Mediterranean mussel (Mytilus galloprovincialis)'', led by Ass Prof Anamaria Štambuk in Croatia and Dr Patrik Nosil in England. My special focus is describing the genetic architecture of morphological traits in Mytilus galloprovincialis by implementing GWAS.
mag. Iva Sabolić
I graduated from Faculty of Science, University of Zagreb with a Master's degree in Ecology and nature preservation in 2016. That same year I enrolled in a PhD program in Biology at Faculty of Science in Zagreb where I work as a young researcher – assistant on Interreg MED Programme project ˝Connectivity among Mediterranean fishery stakeholders and scientists resolves connectivity of fishery populations˝ focusing on on implementing evolutionary knowledge about stock structure and connectivity of octopus and red shrimp populations in fisheries conservation.
Dr. sc. Maja Šrut
I studied Ecology at the Faculty of Science, University of Zagreb, where I also received my doctoral degree in 2012. After 2 years postdoctoral research at the University of Innsbruck, Austria I continued my scientific work at the University of Zagreb as a postdoc/higher assistant. Currently, I am involved in several research topics in the fields of environmental toxicology with special focus on epigenetics and microbiome analysis in soil invertebrates and ecological evolution using genomic tools on lizards.
Dr. rer. nat. Robert Bakarić
First and foremost I'm a bioinformatic professional. I have been (and still am) working as a research assistant, software developer, linux system administrator, web administrator, data analyst and bioinformatic consultant. I simply enjoy taking on difficult problems and turning them into elegant solutions. You can find out more about me at www.robertbakaric.eu or follow my work on:
mag. Vid Baković
I graduated from the Faculty of Science at the University of Zagreb with a master’s degree in Environmental Sciences (mag. oecol). Currently I am employed at Boku University Vienna, Austria as a Research Assistant working on my PhD dealing with "Genomics of the European cherry fruit fly (Rhagoletis cerasi)" and "The spread dynamics of Wolbachia in Rhagoletis cerasi natural populations" led by Prof. Christian Stauffer at Boku university of Vienna in collaboration with Assis. Prof. Gregory Ragland in the University of Colorado, Denver. My research interests lie in evolution/speciation.
Dr. Óscar Mira
Now working in the genomic aspects of rapid evolution of Podarcis muralis. Currently improving and applying my expertise in ecology, GIS, population genetics, evolution and bioinformatics. I'm interested in animal behaviour, ecology, entomology, evolution and conservation. I worked previously in dormouse ecology at the University of Valencia (Spain), ants taxonomy (traditional and with scanning electron microscopy) at the University of Granada (Spain), and butterflies population genetics, ecology and behaviour at the Universities of Granada (Spain) and Sheffield (UK).
Chief Motivation/Morality Officer
My experience leading teams throughout my career at Štambuk group, which began as a lab maskot in 2011, taught me the importance of an engaged and motivated workforce. I was challenged with managing difficult personalities, and yet was able to keep the team focused on achieving the group's long-term growth.
