I am a freelance journalist based in Berlin, and report for radio, online and print media on the environment, culture, science, and technology.
I will be based in Boston for a Knight Science Journalism Fellowship at Massachusetts Institute of Technology from August 2015 to May 2016.
My academic background is a Graduate Degree in Cultural Sciences, and I was a Visiting Scholar at the Department of Anthropology at Berkeley, and an ERASMUS student at Universidad de Salamanca in Spain.
Various media clients have broadcast and published my work, such as the German national public radios Deutschlandradio Kultur and Deutschlandfunk, DIE ZEIT, and taz – die tageszeitung.
My radio feature on strategies to tackle marine plastic was awarded the UMSICHT Science Award 2015 and, together with my feature on bioplastics, shortlisted for the Holtzbrinck Award for Science Journalism 2014.
Together with a group of international freelance journalists, I ran a freely licensed Live Blog for the climate summit COP-19 in Warsaw, the Climate News Mosaic, in November 2013. For our collaborative ‘glocal’ approach, we won the HostwriterPrize in 2014.

For journalists from abroad, I offer services as a fixer and coordinator. Feel free to contact me if you are looking for someone to
