Biography

I completed my B.Sc. in Biology at Ruhr-University Bochum, and my M.Sc. in Organismic Biology, Evolutionary Biology, and Palaeobiology at Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-University Bonn. During my Masters, I did long research internships at the Natural History Museum in Vienna and the Palaeontological Institute and Museum Zurich.

My Masters Thesis investigated Hippopotami from the Interglacial periods in Germany.

I am a member of the Palaeontologische Gesellschaft and the German Association of Museums.
