Professional experience

Through my MSc studies in coral disease ecology, and the PhD on microplastic pollution and environmental microbiology, I have acquired a broad set of skills in field and laboratory research.

Performing research in Switzerland, Brazil (MSc) and the UK (PhD), provided me with an opportunity to develop under varied settings.


  • Tools and Methods of Natural Sciences Research (Seminar, 3 ECTS)
  • Ecosystems – Concepts, Principles and Processes (Lecture, 3 ECTS)

Personal information

In my free time I enjoy all things history. I have recently started cooking ancient roman recipes, which also combines with my love for food. To my other preferred activities belong travelling, politics, a bit of philosophy and board games.
