Research focus

My research focuses on improving the quantification and understanding of droughts and water resources in Germany with a strong goal of successful knowledge transfer. I am currently working in the knowledge transfer project WIS-D, in which we are developing an innovative information platform for monitoring, forecasting and climate change impacts on water resources in Germany together with stakeholders from different water sectors.

I am currently pursuing a PhD at the University of Potsdam and UFZ under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Sabine Attinger, Prof. Dr. Thorsten Wagener and Dr. Andreas Marx.

Working Experience

Since 2021/07: 

Scientific assistant in the knowledge transfer project "WIS-D":

- generating high resolution water cycle information for Germany

- support of stakeholder processes

- development and calculation of tailor-made indicators for monitoring water cycle components and estimating climate change impacts on the water cycle in Germany
