Bat Research

and Conservation


I am a lecturer and researcher at the Department of Theoretical Biology, University of Vienna and the Natural History Museum Vienna. My main research focus is bat morphology. In my doctoral thesis I used microCT imaging in combination with ground sections and other histological techniques to quantify inter- and intraspecific variation of bat penis bone traits. My Ph.D. advisors were Dr. Barbara Herzig ( Mammal Collection, Natural History Museum Vienna ), Ao. Univ. Prof. Dr. Helge Hilgers (Dept. of Integrative Zoology; University of Vienna), Dr. Brian D. Metscher (Dept. of Theoretical Biology; University of Vienna), and Univ. Prof. i. R. Dr. Hanns Plenk (Bone and Biomaterials Research, Medical University of Vienna).

With BatLife Austria, I also participate in studies of bat ecology with a focus on bat conservation.
