Community Ecology & Ecotoxicology
Master student


I studied Chemistry with a special focus on Analytical Chemistry at the University of Ibadan, Nigeria. Afterwards, I was seeking knowledge on alternative methods to assess pollution in the environment. Therefore, I enrolled for the ecotoxicology Masters program at the University of Koblenz-Landau, Germany. I completed my first internship at Mitox field operations, France, where I worked on risk assessment of pesticides on soil invertebrate communities. This rapidly developed my interest in terrestrial ecotoxicology. Currently, I am completing my Master’s thesis at VU University, Amsterdam, Netherlands. My project is focused on the influence of soil organic matter on the toxicity of neoniconioids to soil organisms
