About me

field work1_by AshleyBae

Growing up in a small village in the far north of Germany I spent my childhood outdoors, either horse riding, or somewhere in the nearby forest collecting mushrooms with my dad. Fascinated by all those creatures nature had to offer, I decided to study Biology at the University of Rostock at the Baltic Sea where I developed a growing passion for the ecology, morphology, evolution and behaviour of invertebrates, especially arthropods. Conducting research in Stefan Richter’s (University of Rostock) and Andreas Wanninger’s (former University of Copenhagen, now University of Vienna) lab allowed me to become familiar with a variety of techniques, including immunohistochemistry, confocal laser scanning microscopy, scanning electron microscopy and molecular methods. After graduating with a German Diploma in Biology, I joined Mark Elgar’s lab in 2013 to focus on signalling, communication, chemical ecology and behaviour in Australian arthropods.
