In 2019, I completed my bachelor's degree in "Environmental Sciences" at the University of Koblenz-Landau. In my bachelor thesis, I investigated soil health in permaculture systems, a possible way of sustainable agriculture. More specifically, I studied fungi, bacteria, mycorrhiza, and protozoa and their link to ecosystem services. From 2019 to 2021, I continued with my master studies in "Environmental Sciences" at the Justus-Liebig-University of Giessen and graduated with a thesis on "Influence of tree rows as edge structure on the biodiversity of Carabidae and Araneae in the agroforestry system at Gladbacherhof". Back in Landau, I worked as a research assistant at the Institute of Environmental Sciences. In 2022 I got the opportunity to start my PhD on the fate of pesticides and their impact on non-target organisms within the SystemLink project funded by the DFG.
