I am very interested in biology and wish to diversify my knowledge in this subject, especially how animals behave.In my spare time I always love to observe animals in my surroundings, mostly invertebrates. I keep ant colonys, hermit crabs and spiders like Nephila and Phidippus and it is always fascinating to see how they interact with their surroundings and each other. At the Max-Planck-Institute for Ornithology I mostly take care of the zebra fish but I am looking forward to learn more and maybe some day I can work with invertebrates like ants or spiders.
Jayme earned her BSc in Biology at Bowling Green State University with a specialization in marine and aquatic biology. She joined the team as a technician in 2016 to help with animal husbandry and assist researchers with setting up and running experiments. She wishes to use her communication and organizational skills to improve operations in the lab while diversifying her education in science.
