Graduate Assessor of the Phycology Section

Charlotte Permann is a PhD student at the Department of Botany, University of Innsbruck, Austria. Her current research focuses on the sexual reproduction (conjugation) of a streptophyte green algal class (Zygnematophyceae), which has been established as immediate sister lineage to land plants. The studies include the collection of field samples and the cultivating of conjugating Zygnematophyceae, as well as the analysis of their conjugation morphology and the structural and biochemical properties of the formed zygospores. She received her Master's degree in 2020 in the research group 'Cell Biology of Plants' on conjugation experiments in Zygnema, followed by her PhD thesis in the eponymous project 'Sexual Reproduction of Zygnematophyceae (Charophyta)'.
