About the "Ant Lady"
Dr. Magdalena Sorger, myrmecologist and evolutionary ecologist, currently lives in Austria. She returned to her home town Vienna after studying and working in the United States for almost 10 years. Her scientific projects have previously led her around the world and into a wide range of environments and habitats. Her work has been published in news outlets, such as the New York Times and National Geographic. Most recently, she contributed to the Netflix documentary “Alien Worlds” and can be seen in it!
When she started her journey into science and ants in 2008 (after she had just graduated from business school!), she made it a priority for herself to talk about her work and general scientific concepts in a way that is accessible to a broad audience. She always considered kids and young adults and important group to focus on. Therefore, her goal has always been to convey her own experiences and scientific understanding with particular regard to this group. As such, she presents topics in an engaging and interactive wayto allow new perspectives on the exciting natural worldthat we are all surrounded by.
