Daniel is the Science Coordinator of Iain’s Department and of the Migration and Immuno-Ecology Department led by Martin Wikelski. He is working on establishing the department at the University of Konstanz. Daniel holds an MSc (FU Berlin) and PhD (Ulm University) in Biology. During his PhD and postdoc fieldwork in Brazil he realized that his true strength is rather organizing science for others than performing science himself. With this in mind, he became the coordinator of the IMPRS for Organismal Biology and built it from scratch. After four years of coordinating this grad school he was open for a new challenge and started to coordinate the two departments.
