Personlig profil


After completing my bachelor’s thesis in Marie Dacke’s lab, I knew that animal behaviour was what interested me the most. Having grown fascinated by the ability of insects, with brains smaller than a rice grain, to perform elegant navigational behaviours, I began a master’s programme in Molecular Biology, with courses focusing on neuro- and sensory biology. To finish my degree, I returned to the Dacke lab to continue my work with the dung beetles. And here I have happily stayed. The goal of my PhD projects is to broaden the understanding of the wind compass, both behaviourally and morphologically. I am also quite interested in investigating how different orientation cues, with varying levels of noise, are integrated. To study all of this, I use South African, ball-rolling dung beetles as my model organism.
