Nature has fascinated me since my early youth. One of my central concerns in university teaching is to arouse curiosity and interest in the subject of biology. Hence, teaching enables me to transport a broad, comprehensive, and interdisciplinary approach to nature in an academic context, that is vanishing in an ever-increasing reductionist science landscape. My teaching approach is based on different course types with the intention to support students in becoming biologists and to enable them to independently explore the content of specific areas in biology. It is essential that students explore what the world is, but constantly wonder why it is like this. Furthermore, it is a core element in scientific education to open up students minds to modern science.
