My name is Hanna Bensch, I am a PhD candidate at the Linneus University, Kalmar, Sweden. I am interested in animal ecology and evolutionary ecology, have the most experience working with birds and insects but have moved on to mammals and mole-rats as my study system for my PhD.

I started as a field biologist broadly interested in ecology and spending time outdoors. Now I find myself excited sitting at the computer too – who would have guessed that 10 years ago? My PhD give me an amazing opportunity to mix field and office.
