I am an ecologist driven by a fascination for systems and the dynamics of interactions, impacts and mechanisms in natural ecosystems. Through my bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Sciences, I have been confronted with ecological challenges and decided to work on my knowledge and understanding of nature.

Since 2020, I have dedicated myself to the study of ecosystems and want to contribute as a researcher, student, teacher, and scientist. I am deeply impressed and driven by the beauty of nature and all organisms and processes within.

During my master’s degree in Ecology and Evolution, I studied several key aspects of ecosystems. Linking abiotic changes with the impacts on biodiversity, ecosystem functions, and coupled trophic interactions seems particularly important to me. Stable ecosystems are a complex that depends on multiple factors. Understanding those is of great importance for implementation and integration into future decisions, actions, and developments regarding ecosystem management.

 As part of the Multitrophic Biodiversity group at Dr. Jana Petermann’s Department of Environment and Biodiversity, we are investigating food webs between plants, herbivores and predators, their stoichiometry and functions in the Forest Biodiversity Experiment project in China.
