Research interests


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.
