Research interests/current works

My PhD thesis focuses on the ecology and ecotoxicology of the Asian bush mosquito (Aedes japonicus). This invasive species originates in Asia, has spread worldwide and already got established in Germany. I conduct experiments in the field and in the lab to study, e.g., oviposition preferences, larval habitat, competition with the native mosquito fauna, and insecticide capability.
