Fields of Activity

  • Acoustic survey of pelagic fish species (e.g. herring and sprat) in the Baltic Sea
  • research on the biology (growth, distribution, aging and mortality) of Baltic Sea cod using data from mark-recapture experiments

Research Interests

  • population dynamics and fisheries management
  • consequences of alternative fishing patterns
  • biology of the Baltic Sea cod
  • gear technology and fish behavior

Scientific background

since June 2021: Scientist in the pelagic working group at the Thünen-Institute of Baltic Sea Fisheries, Rostock; cruise leader of the May-acoustic survey

August 2021: PhD at the University of Hamburg, title of the thesis: „Interlinked patterns in movements and otolith formation of cod (Gadus morhua) in the southern Baltic Sea“

2018-2021: Scientist in the project „TABACOD (Tagging of Baltic Sea Cod - Markierung von Ostseedorschen)"

2015-2018: Master of Science Marine Ecosystem and Fisheries at the Institute of Marine Ecosystem and Fishery Sciences, University of Hamburg. Master thesis: „Shape your fish stock: Using a length- and aged-based population model to find the optimal selectivity pattern“

2014-2016: Research Assistant on sea-going surveys of the Thünen Institute of Baltic Sea Fisheries and Sea Fisheries

2012-2015: Bachelor of Science in Environmental Sciences at the University of Oldenburg. Bachelor thesis: „Aged and children first! Challenges in the development of a new selectivity concept in trawl fisheries”
