Research Interests

During my bachelor thesis I investigated whether territorial Lamprologus callipterus males adjust the size of shells they use to build a nest to the risk of sperm competition by parasitic males. In my master studies I compare the behavioral ecology of six distinct population of Neolamprologus pulcher from Lake Tanganyika, East Africa. In the field these populations differ their habitat structure, predation pressure and behavior. In a common garden experiment I study whether the F1 generation of wild caught individuals still displays significant differences in behavior, by testing them in different contexts.
