Researcher in the DFG project "TRANSNORMS"
In August 2019, I joined the Center for Transnational Relations, Foreign and Security Policy at the Otto Suhr Institute for Political Science of the Free University of Berlin as a research associate of the DFG-funded Reinhart Koselleck project TRANSNORMS.
From October 2015 until July 2019, I was working as a research associate in the DFG-funded research project "Carbon Governance Arrangements and the Nation-State", which was based at the Research Group on International Relations of the Technical University of Darmstadt (Oct 2016 - Jul 2019) and at the Chair for International Governance of the University of Münster (Oct 2015 - Sep 2016). During this research period, I was a visiting researcher at the Centre for Policy Research (CPR) in New Delhi, India (2018), the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Mandi, India (2018), the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) in Bogor, Indonesia (2017), and the Bogor Agricultural University (IPB) in Bogor, Indonesia (2017). Following my undergraduate and graduate studies in Political Science and Economics at the University of Trier, at IEP "Sciences Po" Bordeaux and at the University of Colorado at Boulder, I was working at GIZ's Competence Center of Climate Change and as a policy adviser with Thuringia's Ministry of Economic Affairs.
