I am currently studying Biology and Italian at the University of Innsbruck for my Diploma’s degree in the Teacher Training Programme.

For my thesis work, I am comparing morphological features of different Daphnia species within the Daphnia longispina species complex. The members of this species complex frequently hybridize and show a high degree of phenotypic plasticity, which complicates morphological identification of the species. In this project, I aim to identify species-diagnostic morphological features using geometric morphometrics and to assess the suitability of morphological analyses for species identification in this complex.


 Research Topics:

  • Traditional morphology and geometric morphometrics
  • Speciation and gene flow
  • Hybridisation
