Research interest

The goal of my PhD is to better document changes of the Upper Triassic tetrapod faunas of Southern Germany and to determine their putative controlling factors.

Currently I use Ecological Niche Modeling to better understand the connections between changing climates and the occurrence of different aquatic tetrapod taxa across the Upper Triassic Keuper.
