Postdoctoral researcher

My fascination with different host strategies to overcome the spread of disease led me to join the Ulrich lab in 2023 to study the link between viral disease dynamics in ant colonies and their social network structure. My PhD studies with Professor Joachim Kurtz at the University of Muenster, focused on the impacts of individual immunological experience of Tribolium castaneum on their chemical profiles, microbiome and niche choice. I also utilised experimental evolution to study the role of niche construction for host adaptation to a bacterial pathogen.
