During my work as a postdoctoral researcher at the IUSF, I investigate various dimensions and key drivers of the global transition towards an environmentally sustainable world. The main goal of my research is to contribute to more ecological and social sustainability by gaining a deeper understanding of political, economic and societal actors‘ decision-making and behaviors as well as by investigating, identifying and testing efficient and innovative (behavioural) policy instruments. In particular, my main research focuses on farmers‘ decision-making and behavioral economic insights for sustainable agriculture.
In 2019 I started my interdisciplinary PhD in the graduate school AGRI-TRANSFORM (Leverage Points for the Transformation to an Environmentally Sustainable Agriculture) at the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) in the department Environmental Politics and at the Philipps-University Marburg in the working group Sustainable Use of Natural Resources. I graduated in 2019 from Georg-August University (GAU) Göttingen with a M.A. in International Economics and from Rijksuniversiteit Groningen with a M.Sc. in International Economics and Business. Before, I obtained a Bachelor in Economics and Cultural Anthropology from the GAU.
Furthermore, I am i) an economic consultant within the KfW project „Identifying and testing of (behavioural) interventions to improve household connections to the central wastewater system“ and ii) a visiting fellow at the James Hutton Institute in Scotland.
