Katharina is PhD candidate with a background in economics working in the group “Behavioral and Experimental Economics for the Environment”. During her previous studies, she specialised in behavioural and experimental economics, gaining experience with experimental methods used in lab experiments. Her current research focuses on the impacts of ecosystem dynamics on human cooperative behaviour. She wants to examine how approaching regime shifts in ecological systems influence the human exploitation of natural resources. The aim is to improve policy designs that promote integrated resource management strategies.
