I am a PhD student at the Zoologische Staatssammlung München (ZSM), Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, and Technische Universität Braunschweig. I am conducting research on the reptiles and especially amphibians of Madagascar, under the supervision of Dr. Frank Glaw and Professor Miguel Vences.

Research Interests

My primary research interests lie in the evolutionary history and biogeography of the herpetofauna of Madagascar, where I have been conducting research of increasing sincerity since 2005. My work centres around evolution, systematics, taxonomy, and osteology of the reptiles and amphibians of Madagascar.
