About Me

Scientific assistant in the project climate change and fish movement patterns within the river fish ecology group

Research interests & background

Currently, I am working as scientific assistant in an acoustic telemetry project monitoring the movement patterns of several riverine fish species under the influence of climate change within the Swiss Rhine-Aare river network. I am responsible for outreach work and coordinating the project.

My past research focus ranges from visual communication and sensory processing in marine and freshwater fishes, lampreys and social insects, over acoustics in shrimps and cetaceans, to movement patterns/migration in birds and sharks.
