    PhD student

    • Evolution and phylogeny of aculeate Hymenoptera using 3D imaging techniques, analysis of the skeletal musculature

    Research

    My PhD-project is about the phylogeny and evolution of aculeate Hymenoptera. Using µCT-scans and 3D-reconstructions I investigate characters of skeletal-muscles of these insects. A broad morphological data set should help clarifying phylogenetic relationships. Project description
