After finishing my technician training at the Institute of Veterinary Medicine in Göttingen I was fortunate to right away start work in the new Rink department. As a technician, my number one goal is that the science runs smoothly each and every day. Besides, I support others in the department with their projects and also work on a few of my own. A big part of my fascination for the work going on in the department is the animals themselves. It's a huge privilege to be surrounded by weird and wonderful animals at all hours - in the department by day and at my place by night (as a invertebrate hobbyist).
