Ulrike Scherer is a biologist with a special interest in the ecology and evolution of behavior. In her previous work, Ulrike focused on sexual selection and the evolution of personality differences (MSc and PhD work). Within the scope of the SCIoI cluster, Ulrike wants to understand how individuals develop intelligent (i.e. efficient, goal-oriented, adaptive) behavior using a clonal fish species, the amazon molly, as a model organism.
At SCIoI, Urlike works on Project 21, “Developing exploration behavior”.
