Focus: True Bugs of Australia (Insecta : Hemiptera : Heteroptera)

Entirely addicted to True Bugs (Heteroptera), mainly interested in Australia's terrestrial bug fauna, which I curate for iNaturalist.

Sensuous nature-loving person based in Heidelberg/Germany, originally from Berlin. Studied a BSc & MSc majoring in Ecology, Biocontrol and Functional Genomics/Bioinformatics at Frankfurt Uni & TU Darmstadt, currently working at the German Federal Research Centre for Cultivated Plants, interested in opportunities and challenges of using environmental nucleic acids (eDNA, eRNA) to assess arthropod diversity in agricultural landscapes.
Passionate about everything beautiful, nature & sustainability, gardening, art & music, stars & space... Always on the road in nature things, as a citizen scientist and volunteer, or just bushwalking with my camera.
Love combing through iNat's backlog for 1st records of species not yet added to iNat's taxonomy and other interesting stuff. For some highlights (mostly Australia) see my Treasures From the Backlog.

OpenTo... Always interested in bug-related projects/positions etc - just in case someone happens to come across sth.
