I finished my bachelor´s studies in “Forensic science (B.Sc.)” at the University of Applied Sciences of Bonn-Rhein-Sieg in 2014. From 2014 to 2016 I did my master´s study in “Ecotoxicology (M.Sc.)” at the University of Koblenz-Landau. In summer 2015 I had the chance to do a three month internship in the aquatic ecotoxicology of Bayer CropScience in Monheim, where I worked with fish, crustaceans and aquatic plants. My master´s thesis dealt with the effects of the viticultural fungicide folpet (Folpan 80 WDG) on early developmental stages of Rana temporaria.

In January 2018 I startet my PhD in which I investigate the effects of envionmental relevant pesticides on German Anura.
