Biography:

Passionate Dipterist...

Since the youth I was interested in any living thing bearing more than two legs.

I studied biology at Ernst-Moritz-Arndt University Greifswald and graduated with a diploma in biology (major: zoology; minors: biochemistry & ecology) in March 2003.

Beside lower Diptera in general, I am interested in the diversity of Holarctic “Fungus Gnats” (Diptera: Sciaroidea).
