I got my Undergraduate at the University of Groningen, Netherlands, majoring in Ecology and Marine Biology. Since then I am doing my masters in Evolution both at Leipzig University and Humboldt University of Berlin.

I am interested in "old-school" evolutionary Biology. How is a species' morphology adapted to a certain environment and how do these traits compare to other taxa. So far my research has been on cross sectional properties of Sciuromorph femora. My Master’s thesis will focus on movement of Tamanduas using x-ray motion analysis and the creation of a 3-D skeletal model of the pectoral girdle and limbs.
