I live in Berlin, Germany, and work as a journalist for radio, online and print media on the environment, science, and technology.
An independent producer since 2009, I’ve investigated ocean plastics, interviewed solar pilots and cycling activists, searched for a greener internet, and followed bags made of bioplastic back to their producer.
My reports have appeared on German national public radio Deutschlandfunk, in print newspapers like DIE ZEIT and taz, as well as English media such as Nature, PRI, Ensia, and Climate Home.
In 2015-2016, I was one of ten Knight Science Journalism Fellows at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where I completed an in-depth program in science writing and environmental sciences through courses at MIT and Harvard University.
My radio feature on strategies to tackle marine plastic was awarded the Fraunhofer UMSICHT Science Award in 2015. I was part of the Climate News Mosaic collective, which won the HostwriterPrize in 2014.
I hold a German Diploma in Cultural Sciences from the European University Viadrina in Frankfurt (Oder), and have studied two semesters abroad in Salamanca, Spain, and Berkeley, California.
From April 2017 to April 2018 I was a press officer at the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS) in Potsdam.
