Nora Molkenthin studied Physics and Mathematics at Berlin, Manchester and Cambridge before obtaining a PhD on Climate Networks at PIK and HU Berlin within the interdisciplinary graduate school "Sichtbarkeit und Sichtbarmachung" in 2014. She then worked on PostDoctoral projects at MPIDS in Göttingen as well as TU Darmstadt and TU Dresden covering topics from Protein Folding to Social Networks and On-demand Ride-sharing. Since 2020 she co-leads the working group "Dynamics, stability and resilience of complex, hybrid infrastructure networks" at PIK.
