Anna Stöckl received her bachelor’s degree in biology in Heidelberg and master’s in neuroscience in Munich. She then joined the group of Prof. Eric Warrant at Lund University in Sweden for her PhD work, where she investigated the neural strategies that allow hawkmoths to see at night. Anna used electrophysiological, anatomical and quantitative behavioural tools to understand how neural processing helps these insects to extend the limits of their visual behaviour to starlight intensities. Anna currently works at Würzburg University, Germany, where she continues to investigate the fascinating visual abilities of hawkmoths. In her free time, she enjoys singing in choir and inline skating through the beautiful countryside.
