Research Interests

I am interested in participatory research, biodiversity education and especially in new approaches to improve the science-society-policy interactions in the field of environmental research.

In my PhD thesis, I investigate the potential of citizen science for ecological stream monitoring. Together with project partners from Friends of the Earth Germany (BUND), the Saxony State Foundation for Nature and the Environment (LaNU) and the UFZ department System-Ecotoxicology, I coordinate and develop the citizen science project FLOW (www.flow-projekt.de). The FLOW monitoring is based on the European Water Framework Directive standards and aims to complement the German monitoring of small streams (“Kleingewässermonitoring”) of UFZ and the Federal Environmental Agency (Umweltbundesamt). In the FLOW project, we train citizen groups to provide monitoring data on stream hydromorphology, physicochemical water quality, and benthic invertebrate communities to apply the biological indicator SPEARpesticides. Based on the FLOW monitoring results and a participant survey, I examine the quality of citizen science data and the impact of citizen science on the participants' personal development, stream conservation-related attitudes and behaviours. We are also interested in innovative methods to integrate heterogeneous data sources, i.e. citizen science and official monitoring data.
