Versatile ecologist (natural sciencist) with a focus on insects as indicators of climate change, biodiversity and phenology with background of agriculture

Vienna

During my professional and academic career, I have dealt extensively with crop protection. I have carried out my work under different climatic conditions such as Mediterranean climate, continental climate. I was able to acquire profound knowledge and practical experience in the field of biological and conventional crop protection products and toxicology, which I would now like to bring to your company. My main interests are quality and safety management as well as health and environmental protection.

As an agricultural consultant, I have already worked closely with farms and authorities and supported them about pest and weed control and plant diseases. Risk management always required strategies for complex ecological issues. The development of sophisticated fertilization programmes and the targeted use of beneficial organisms are part of my range of services. I was able to gain similar experience as a study assistant at the University of Süleyman Demirel.

My many years of experience in the laboratory have always given me great pleasure and my willingness to learn in this area is untiring. I have already been able to develop various methods for observing parameters of the life cycle of different arthropod species. Here, I can prove my strong logical-analytical thinking skills and my always careful as well as responsible and dutiful way of working.

In the field of research and product development, the production of high-quality food that contributes to sustainable agriculture is very close to my heart. In area of this work, I can offer endless and exciting possibilities especially the possibility to derive measures from the research results, which can be adapted to the product focus and the company philosophy, fascinates me. Good research also enables the efficient use of all company resources and can contribute significantly to the company’s success.

New tasks are welcome challenges for me, but routine work is also a necessary part of a well-balanced professional life. With me, you will gain a motivated, ambitious and communicative employee – who will always be fully committed to the tasks assigned to her, both independently and in a team.

In addition, I have a very good command of German, English and IT, which I acquired during my studies.
