First, something to my person. I am a paleontologist and PhD-student at the University of Bonn, Germany. 

When I am not sitting in front of the computer, I like being in the field - be it to do  excursions or to dig up fossils. Especially the vertebrate fossils are a focal point of mine. In 2002 and 2003 I joined excursions to the badlands of the US and Canada. Otherwise I did some travelling through Europe (where I prefer the mediterranean countries).  Lately, I am visiting museums all over Europe and North America to get hold of turtles for my PhD project.

I am a member of the Paläontologische Gesellschaft, Germany, and the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology, USA. For homepages, check out and

Also have a look at the picture section where I will be putting some interesting pics (fossils, excursions, other stuff...) soon

The HP is still under construction. I appologize for any mistakes - please let me know if something's not working....
