Henning Nolzen started a PostDoc position at EcoEpi within the HI-CAM initiative. Henning is about to implement a spatially-explicit, small scale metapoluation model to represent tick dynamics dependent on micro-climatic and landuse parameters. The work is accompanied by large-scale habitat modelling through collaboration with the team of Katharina Brugger & Franz Rubel at the Vet Uni Vienna.
