I was born in Germany, but lost my heart to the alps of Switzerland.
I studied Biology in Konstanz, Germany, did a PhD in Zürich, Switzerland, postdoctoral research in Dunedin, New Zealand, and now postdoctoral research in Oslo, Norway.
I am a curious, lifely and impatient person, but I cherish to sleep-in and relax with a big fluffy cup of cappuccino - for me, these characteristics go pretty well together.
I sacrifice almost all my spare time to bouldering and climbing but do also love many other forms of mountain sports like hiking, skiing or mountaineering. I am also fond of traveling and a passionate hobby-photographer - and, whenever I can, I will also bring my binoculars to spot some birds or other wildlife.
