University of East Anglia
Throughout my higher education (BA, Middlebury College, USA; MPhil, University of Oxford, UK) I have focused on sustainability and particularly climate change from a social science perspective. I am currently pursuing a PhD on climate policy evaluation with Professor Andy Jordan at the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, School of Environmental Sciences at the University of East Anglia. I joined the Institute for Political Science at the Technische Universität Darmstadt as a research and teaching fellow with Prof. Dr. Kai Schulze in October 2016. Since April 2017, I am a research fellow with Prof. Dr. Michèle Knodt, where I contribute to the Kopernikus Projecton the European Energy Union. My research focuses on energy, climate, and environmental politics and especially polycentric governance and policy monitoring evaluation.

Networks and Service
- I am a member of the Innovations in Climate Governance (INOGOV) Network of Excellence, which is funded by the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST Association). Since mid-2015, I have been coordinating the Early Career Investigators Network (ECIN) and I represent early career researchers in the INOGOV Core Group (Management).
- Viviane Gravey and I founded the Environmental Europe? Blog in December 2013 in order to make environment and climate change politics research insights available to a broader audience. We regularly analyze current developments in environmental politics and link these with research insights.
- I am a member of the German Political Science Association.
