My main research interests include entomological research topics, with a special emphasis on wild bees, molecular ecology, pollination networks, and invasion biology. During my PhD studies at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna, I investigated the invasion history and population interconnectivity of the first potentially invasive wild bee in Europe, Megachile sculpturalis. Currently, I am a Post-Doc at the Department of Ecology at the working group of Molecular Ecology. I use integrative-taxonomical tools, population-genetic methods, morphometrics, and classical and participative monitoring approaches. Current projects aim to investigate the spatial ecology of bees in different landscapes.
I am passionate about science communication and nature conservation topics. I am a member of the Austrian wild bee consortium and the national citizen science community as project leader of BeeRadar (www.beeradar.info). For further details on my research, please contact me directly.
