MSc student in the group of Walter Salzburger.

Current research

The cichlids of the Great East African lakes display an amazing diversity of coloration patterns and ornaments. The members of the Neolamprologus brichardi/pulcher complex belonging to the tribe of the Lamprologines are highly similar in body morphology, but different in a conspicuous facial ornament. I am investigating what role those facial stripes play in reproductive isolation and as signals in contests over resources.

...and else?

I spend as much time possible outdoors in Basel and all over the world, this can be on the back of a horse, on a snowboard, with a diving goggles in the sea or on my two feet.
