My work here in Sweden is funded for a total of three years by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) through an Early Postdoc.mobility fellowship and by the European Commission through a Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowship.


Before coming to Lund I worked as a short term (0.5 year) postdoc in Ole Seehausen’s lab at Eawag Kastanienbaum, where I supported investigations of the evolutionary past of Lake Victoria Cichlids using computer vision.

Between 2015 and 2019 I completed my PhD in Blake Matthews’ lab at Eawag Kastanienbaum under co-supervision from Jukka Jokela, funded by ETH Zürich’s Center for Adaptation to a Changing Environment. For my thesis, I conducted a series of experiments to explore the role of different types of species interactions within different levels of ecological organization and across a range of ecological contexts.

Eelgrass monitoring in California Counting corals in Israel Collecting isopods in Switzerland

I received both of my undergrad degrees from the University of Oldenburg, where I was based at the Institute for Chemistry and Biology of the Marine Environment (ICBM). I did my Bachelors thesis with Andreas Kunzmann at the Center for Tropical Marine Ecology in Bremen, Germany, where I investigated the effect of multiple stressors on scleractinian corals. I then went abroad abroad to California for my Masters thesis, to investigate coexistence patterns of seasgrass mesograzers in the Stachowicz lab at Bodega Marie Laboratory, UC-Davis.

I am originally from Mülheim an der Ruhr in NRW, Germany, where I went to Gymnasium Broich.
