Person:

After completion of my diploma thesis on the “visual acuity of European eels (Anguilla anguilla L.)” and the studies on marine biology at the University of Rostock, I continued working there as a research assistant at the department for sensory and cognitive ecology, for another year in the area of science and teaching. Afterwards I changed to the Institute for Applied Ecosystem Research in Rostock and worked as a scientific employee, first in the area of benthic organisms and the last 5 years as an ornithologist mainly on marine birds and environmental impact assessment. Since the end of 2018 I am working at the University of Landau on the topic of environmental services and here by I am focusing on the self-purification capacities of freshwater streams.
