I like fish!

Adrian Indermaur

Head of animal facility (Leiter Tierforschung) in the group of Walter Salzburger

Current research

I am responsible for the supervision, organization and development of our animal facility including the execution and permission of animal experiments. I am further involved in preparation and assistance of our field-work in Zambia and Tanzania and also assist in the maintenance of our specimen collection.

In addition to the above duties, I am involved in different research projects in the SalzburgerLab, dealing with various topics such as genomics, ecological divergence, phylo-geography and taxonomy.

...and else?

I spend all the money I can save to travel the world - whenever possible. I love to explore different cultures and countries, of such especially those with good divesites. During the times at home I really enjoy a beer out with friends or once in a while a good movie.
