Annika Mangold-Doering – ESR10 – Wageningen University & Research
Modelling effects of global change induced alterations of biological community composition on vulnerability to chemicals (WP5)
Annika is an early state researcher, holding a MSc degree in ecotoxicology from RWTH Aachen University, Germany. During her studies she focused on both, the ecological and the toxicological aspects in environmental research. In her bachelor’s thesis she investigated interactions between pollinators and different pollinating syndromes of different plant species and their use for automated image evaluation. She conducted her master’s thesis in collaboration with the Toxicology Centre of the University of Saskatchewan, Canada, about a multi-species physiologically-based toxicokinetic (PBTK) modelling approach for fishes, focussing on exposure and risk assessment of chemicals.
Starting May 2019, Annika is a PhD candidate of the Aquatic Ecology and Water Quality Management Group at Wageningen University & Research, as part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network ECORISK2050. Her PhD project is about “Modelling effects of global change induced alterations of biological community composition on vulnerability to chemicals”. Thus, she will work on models at different levels of biological organization (individual, population, community, ecosystem) that describe the combined influence of global climate change and chemical pressures on ecosystem function and structure.
