I am a master student of Ecology and Biodiversity at the University of Innsbruck, and I am passionate about natural conservation measures and their effects on biodiversity. I developed this interest during my bachelor program on landscape architecture and planning in Freising, Germany, where I implemented a monitoring system for solitary bees in urban areas as my bachelor thesis.

I am convinced that for conservation measures to be effective, gathering knowledge on the interlinkages of the ecological system is essential. For many insects, the decrease in biodiversity is well-documented, and the main drivers of this phenomenon are considered to be the loss of habitat, changing climate conditions, and the excessive use of pesticides. Therefore, in my master thesis, I investigate the effects of land management, landscape structures, and flowering colors on the abundance and the diversity of solitary bees in the valley of the Inn.
