My doctoral project is part of the collaborative research centre SFB-TRR212 "A Novel Synthesis of Individualisation across Behaviour, Ecology and Evolution: Niche Choice, Niche Conformance, Niche Construction". Working under Professor Marie Kaiser, I will investigate the ontological status of individualised niches. Specific foci are the nature of biological individuality and individualisation, the status of individualised ecological niches, and the mechanisms of individualised niche choice, construction and conformance.
