I am a master student at the University of Innsbruck, where I study Ecology and Biodiversity. For my thesis, I investigate the social structure of the Australian bull ant Myrmecia nigriceps, which is used as a study organism in ecological neuroscience.

 The aim of my thesis project is to do population genetic analysis and compare the results with observational data (foraging, tree sharing), which I obtained in Australia when collecting samples.


 Research Topics:

  • Population genetics and genomics
  • (Sexual) behaviour
  • Myrmecology


Other interests:

  • Botany


International collaborator in my thesis project:

Dr. Ajay Narendra, Macquarie University, AUS


Working title MSc thesis:

Social structure of Myrmecia ant species relevant for ecological neuroscience
