Person

I studied at the University of Frankfurt/Main and graduated in 2012 with a B.Sc. in chemistry. I started focusing on environmental sciences while working on my bachelor thesis where I analysed crude oil-contaminated groundwater samples. In 2013 I enrolled at Landau in the M.Sc. ecotoxicology programme and got the opportunity of an internship with a contract research organisation in summer 2014 where I was involved in terrestrial laboratory and (semi-) field studies, particularly with bees.

Research Interests

My master thesis deals with the influence of food availability and pesticide application on the nesting success and brood development of the solitary bee Osmia bicornis. Additionally, I am taking part in a laboratory ring test where I conduct oral and contact tests to determine the acute impact of insecticides on O. bicornis.
