Davina Dietrich, BEng

Room 530


Before coming to the University of Innsbruck in autumn 2021, I finished my bachelor’s degree in Landscape Planning and Nature Conservation at HfWU Nürtingen-Geislingen. In my studies, I have always enjoyed practical and on-site projects with a connection to conservation efforts. I am fascinated by this world’s endless diversity of organisms and landscapes and happy that I get to know these special alpine ecosystems here in Innsbruck.

My master thesis is a collaborative project supervised by Sabine Hille from BOKU Vienna and Fränzi Korner-Nievergelt from the Swiss Ornithological Institute in Sempach. I focus on snow finches (Montifringilla nivalis) and the asynchrony in growth of their nestlings in a population at the Grossglockner. I am recording feeding behaviour after hatching and important environmental parameters such as weather and snow cover that might influence distinct growth.
