After completing my diploma in genetics and microbiology at the University of Vienna, I received my doctorate in veterinary sciences at vetmeduni Vienna in 2016. As part of my dissertation, I researched bispecific antibodies against human cancers produced in transgenic cattle. Since 2009 I have also been a proud part-time farmer (sheep, beef). My passion for animal welfare and my interest in the human-animal relationship drew my attention to the IMHAI Master`s degree, which I completed during my PhD in 2018, with the master's thesis on the influence of positive emotions on IgA in the saliva of calves. For the last two years, I have been working in East Saxony as a project developer of an agricultural, educational property. There, I could not only use my knowledge and experience concerning animal husbandry, bioethics and sustainable agriculture practically, but also pass it on to groups of all ages in form of lectures, seminars and training courses. Since October 2018, I have been back in Vienna, looking for new challenges.
