Dipl.Biol. Anke Gutmann
2008 Diploma in Biology
To work with animals and especially to observe their behaviour and their communication seems to be my innate passion. My studies of Biology and a following research assistant position in Göttingen, Germany, mainly dealt with the behaviour of primates, including human beings as well.Now after my diploma I prefer to work with farm animals in the field of Applied Ethology, since these animals we are most associated with are sometimes the ones worst understood.Not long ago I joined the research group of lifestock sciences (NuWi) to do my doctoral studies here. My favourite interests are social behaviour, communication und cognition, so my dissertation will stick to and I am going to investigate social behaviour in cattle linked to their emotional state.
