Education:

  • 23.6.1998: Abitur at St.- Franziskus- Gymnasium, Kaiserslautern
  • 1998 – 1999: study of archaeology (University of Heidelberg, Germany)
  • 1999 – 2005: study of biology (University of Kaiserslautern, Germany)

diploma thesis: studies about information transfer in a maternity colony of the bechstein’s bat (supervisor of diploma thesis: PD Dr. G. Kerth,     University of Zürich, Switzerland)

  • Since august 2005: PhD- student in project „development of a non-invasive method to estimate population size of wild boar in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany, within the scope of the reduction of the classical swine fever“. The Project represents a cooperation between the Research Institute for Forestry and Forest Ecology Rhineland-Palatinate, the University of Koblenz- Landau (Institute for Environmental science) and the University of Freiburg (Institute for Forest Zoology, Wildlife Ecology and Wildlife Management)  


Research

  • PhD- project: Development of a method for non-invasive and representative tissue sampling for use in population estimation of wild boar.
  • Space and habitat use of wild boar (VHF- and GPS- Telemetry)
  • Habitat use and communication of Particoloured bats (Vespertilio murinus) and Bechstein’s bats (Myotis bechsteinii)
