Research Interests

My research focusses on citizen science and biodiversity and I aim to better understand structures and functions of citizen science. To this end, I investigate social networks and motivation for involvement in citizen science. Further, I am interested in developing evaluation criteria for citizen science and testing the applicability of citizen science for e.g. the assessment of ecosystem services in protected areas. I am passionate about expanding citizen science as a concept and work with colleagues to assess synergies with education for sustainable development. To foster citizen science in Germany I have coordinated the development of the German Citizen Science strategy 2020 with a consortium of partners in the GEWISS capacity building programme. I am supervising BSc and MSc students and I am open to interdisciplinary research collaborations.


Projects

Potential of Citizen Science and Models of Microfinance for Environmental Education and Education

This study developed of a policy paper with recommendations how to enhance potentials and funding Citizen Science through the integration of citizen science in environmental education and communication.

To derive this finding collaboratively, we conducted participatory workshops and interviews with expert from NGOs, agencies and microfinancing organizations.

Funding: Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB)


Historical Ecosystem Services on Natural Heritage Sites

As an interdisciplinary team (researchers from history, cultural heritage and natural science) we investigate how ecosystem services have changed over time under the consideration of landscape and land use changes during the past 150 years. On this basis, we aim to better understand the current status of the areas and to create support for decisions on future sustainable development.

Funding: German Environment Trust (DBU)

 “The transformative potentials of citizen science in education”

The PhD project, that I am co-supervising, develops a conceptual framework on the embeddedness of citizen science in education in Germany and assesses the benefits of the integration of citizen science in formal and non- formal education. The iDiv FlexPool funded project examines how participatory approaches strengthen the understanding of biodiversity as well as science, media and democracy competencies of high school students.

Main supervisor: Prof. Jörg Zabel

Citizen Science: a concept beyond a method for data collection

With the end of the Capacity Building program “Citizens create knowledge- Knowledge creates citizens ( GEWISS ) multiple insights have been gained in the field of citizen science and are currently under scientific investigation. The investigation is theory driven and focuses on the construction of frameworks and conceptual principles based on the generality of citizen science. The overall aim is to test the interoperability of citizen science with other scientific systems (e.g. Ecosystem Services, Education, and Evaluation) and concepts (Education for Sustainable Development, Action Research). The research contributes to our knowledge and understanding about the functioning of citizen science.

Capacity Building Citizen Science for Germany

I coordinated the “GEWISS” (BürGEr schaffen WISSen, or “Citizens create knowledge”) national capacity building program that was established to strengthen existing partnerships and competencies and to identify gaps and capacity needs for citizen science in Germany. As key output, the “Citizen Science Strategy 2020 for Germany” was developed in collaboration with >700 participants from 350 organisations through a series of dialogue forums and an online consultation with over 1000 website visitors, 400 comments and 53 formal position papers submitted on the draft Strategy paper. Furthermore, citizen science guides and films were developed to strengthen citizen science capacities. The Strategy Paper resulted in the establishment of the first funding scheme for Cititzen Science in Germany by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) . The ”GEWISS” consortium fostered close joint working of the Helmholtz and the Leibniz Association, universities and other organisations in partnership with the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin (MfN), i.e. with the German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv), Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Berlin-Brandenburg Institute for Advanced Biodiversity Research (BBIB), Leibniz Institute for Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries (IGB), Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research (IZW), Freie Universität Berlin, Leibniz Research Alliance “Biodiversity” (LVB) and Wissenschaft im Dialog (WiD).

Outputs include:

“Citizen Science Strategy 2020 for Germany” as input for a new citizen science funding programm by the Federal Ministry of Eductaion and Research (BMBF)
German Federal President Joachim Gauck visit to ‘Woche der Umwelt’ citizen science expert forum
Organisation of >30 national workshops and events with partners (e.g. Leopoldina German National Academy of Sciences, German Federal Environmental Foundation - DBU, Wikimedia, Europarc Deutschland, Karlsruhe Institute for Technology – KIT, Friends of the Earth - BUND, Nature and Biodiversity Conservation Union - NABU)
Citizen science resources with guides, video clips, training workshops and journal papers
