Lisa joined the Environmental Policy Research Centre (FFU) in 2008 as student assistant, working in different projects on sustainability governance. Since May 2011 she has been working as research fellow in projects on environmental strategy development, resource politics and dynamics and processes of transformation.

She was Conference Manager in 2010 and 2012 of the international ‘Berlin Conference of the Human Dimensions of Global Environmental Change’.

Within the programme of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) "A new passage to India" Lisa spent two month in 2012 at The Energy and Resource Institute (TERI) in Delhi, India. In her research at TERI she focused on the potentials and restraints of virtual water/water footprint labeling as a tool for sustainable water management.

In the summer term of 2014 she gave a seminar for master students (together with Klaus Jacob) on the topic “sources of legitimacy”. In the seminar the classics of political philosophy as well as modern theorists and their respective views on legitimacy were discussed and applied on recent environmental policy processes.

Lisa studied political science and communication science in Berlin, Munich and Barcelona. During her study she completed internships at the German Bundestag, the Environmental Department of the Deutsche Bahn and at the Heinrich Böll Foundation.
