I live in Berlin, Germany, and work as a press officer at the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS) in Potsdam. This is my personal website, with texts and audios I’ve produced over the years. All views here are my own.
From 2009-2017, I reported for radio, online and print media on the environment, science, and technology, as an independent author and producer. I 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.
