    Born and raised in Innsbruck, Austria, I wrote my MSc thesis in the lab of Prof. Ruben Sommaruga on the pigmentation of copepods in shallow soda lakes, and my PhD with Prof. Milla Rautio in Chicoutimi, Canada. My research interest is about the environmental control of zooplankton defense mechanisms. I try to understand the role seasonal patterns of ice-cover, light, UV radiation, temperature and phytoplankton play for the pigment expression in crustacean zooplankton.
