In 2007, I obtained my Magister degree in Geography, Sociology and Public Law at the University of Potsdam. In the following I worked there at the Institute of Geography focusing on strategies for reducing land take. Before coming to the PIK in 2017, I was research associate at the Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF), Institute of Socio-Economics, for more than eight years. There, I focused my research on spatial planning and spatial governance, with a special interest in knowledge management, transdisciplinary approaches and innovations. I am currently member of the "Landesarbeitsgemeinschaft Berlin/ Brandenburg/ Mecklenburg-Vorpommern der Akademie für Raumforschung und Landesplanung (ARL)". Additionally, I passed a further training on science management. Since 2017, I am member of "Netzwerk Wissenschaftsmanagement".
