I am a PhD student trying to merge bioacoustics and artificial intelligence to obtain something fruitful for ecology. My journey in science has been quite of a roller coaster ride. After finishing my masters specializing in high energy physics, I shifted gears to the fascinating field of ecology. My motivation for this was nothing but the simple reason of looking at birds. A core-year course on behavior ecology developed my interest in birds and I took bird watching as a hobby. After finishing my masters I decided to convert this hobby into something more meaningful.
