About me

My career was as a research biologist in the fields of cell biology, cell pathology, botany, invasion biology and protozoology at the University of Bonn, Ruhr University Bochum and Free University of Berlin. Holding a diploma in biology (B.S., M.S.) and a RNDr (Ph.D.) from University of Bonn, I taught cytology, evolution biology, cinematography, ecology, zoology and protistology, produced scientific films and wrote and coauthored text books and about hundred research and review articles. Since retirement engaged in electronic dissipation of biological information (mainly scientific films and photos).
