Education

08/2015           Doctor rerum naturalium (magna cum laude, passed with distinction), Technical University Munich, Germany in collaboration with University of California, Davis

Dissertation Title:

Mixture toxicity from single-substance testing to ecosystem effect assessment (available for download here)

Main Advisors:

Prof. Dr. Juergen Geist, Richard Connon, PhD, and Sharon Lawler, Ph.D.

08/2010           Master of Science (passed with high distinction), Biology/Ecotoxicology, Technical University Munich, Germany

Thesis Title:

Ecotoxicological assessment of the effect of the pyrethroid lambda-cyhalothrin on aquatic biocenosis in an artificial outdoor pond-system, with a main focus on zooplankton

Main Advisors:

Dr. Ursula Dawo and Prof. Dr. Wilfried Huber

08/2009           Bachelor of Science, Biology, Technical University Munich, Germany

08/2005           Bachelor of Science, Nutrition Sciences, Technical University Munich, Germany

Research Interests

My research addresses the ecological implications of multiple stressors and micropollutants on aquatic ecosystems at different levels of biological organization. By applying innovative approaches and ecotoxicological test systems of different levels of complexity my goal is to understand the effects of pollution from the molecular to the community level.
