Lena studied Geoecology at the University of Potsdam and specialised in freshwater ecology and aquatic chemistry. She conducted her diploma thesis on the fate of a chemical under nature-related conditions in water at the Federal Environmental Agency of Germany (UBA).
In June 2013 she joined our working group to examine ecological effective concentration levels of toxicants on macroinvertebrate communities in streams.
