. some words about myself

I am originally from north-eastern Germany — from the picturesque coast of the Baltic Sea and the beautiful port town of Rostock.

I now live with my family just outside Washington, DC and work as a researcher at the Smithsonian Institution's natural history museum (NMNH).

I post about my research, insects in general, and photography on social media:
