After completing my master thesis in the Biological Control group at ETH Zurich, I graduated in Plant Pathology from the University of Natural Life science, Vienna (BOKU) in 2019. My research interest focuses on the interaction of biological control agents with their hosts as well as the environment. After an internship in Agroecology at FiBL Switzerland I joined the Group of Applied Animal Ecology to work on the control of wireworms and to live my passion for the mountains.



  • Biological pest control
  • Ecology of Agriotes sp.
  • Optimized attract-and-kill aproach against Agriotes sp.
  • Feeding preferences of wireworms
  • Oviposition behaviour of click-beetles
  • Molecular gut content analysis
  • Entomopathogenic fungi (Metarhizium brunneum)
