I am interested in olfactory
communication of the cooperatively breeding cichlid Neolamprologus
pulcher. During my Bachelor I investigated changes in aggressive
patterns in dependence of the presence and absence of olfactory cues.
In my master thesis I investigate olfactory communication via urine
pulses by using dye injection.
