“I am fascinated by the flux of allochthonous subsidies that link ecosystems across boundaries and how environmental anthropogenic alterations are likely to affect them”
Since 2017, I hold a PhD (Dr. rer. nat.) in River Science, granted by the Freie Universität Berlin and the Queen Mary University of London (Erasmus Mundus program) in which I assessed the effect of Light Pollution on insects and spiders (Loss of the Night project).
Currently, I am working as researcher at the University of Koblenz-Landau within the project SystemLink. My tasks include analyses of the propagation of in-stream environmental alterations from micro-pollutants to adjacent terrestrial ecosystems
My scientific work covers studies on ecological and molecular aspects related to different anthropogenic stressors (light pollution, global warming, land use) using benthic macroinvertebrates, macrophytes, adult aquatic and riparian insects, spiders and fish
Working address: University of Koblenz-Landau, Campus Landau, Fortstraße 7, 76829 Landau
