I am a mathematician turned ecologist. After a Diplom (former German equivalent to MSc) in Mathematics from Bielefeld University, Germany, I was looking for a way to combine my enthusiasm for math and appreciation of nature. This led me to a PhD program at the University of Alberta, Canada, in applied mathematics, where I specialized on mathematical ecology. During this time I learned a lot about ecology and also developed a passion for statistics. I now combine empirical research (including field work on birds) and theoretical research to answer ecological questions while also improving statistical methodology in ecology.
