I am particularly interested in animal behaviour. It fascinates me to discover how everything interlocks, on different levels: from DNA to the entire population in its environment.
Therefore, I have worked a lot in the field of ethology, molecular biology, physiology and ecology. So far, I have had the opportunity to work with very different animal species: (sea)birds, turtles, medusae and more recently bees. I am also always excited when the projects involve application aspects.
I am currently working in Prof. Scheiner's group and am involved in several projects. I work in molecular biology and support the preparation and implementation of behavioural experiments with honeybees.
