I am a zoologist with a research focus on developmental and reproductive biology. My research interests include functional (micro-)morphology, developmental processes, and bat conservation biology. Currently, I study prenatal organ development in mouse models and work on the development of imaging and staining techniques for High-Resolution Episcopic Microscopy (HREM).
In my doctoral thesis I used microCT imaging in combination with ground sections and other histological techniques to quantify inter- and intraspecific variation of bat penis bone traits.
With BatLife Austria, I also participate in studies of bat ecology with a focus on bat conservation.
