Main areas of interest:

◾Readiness and authorization to participate
◾Conflicts between nature conservation and regional development

For many years I have been engaged in participative processes, especially the participation in scientific topics. During my studies and my doctorate, my main focus was on conflicts between nature conservation and regional development and how the inhabitants of protected areas are involved in administration and decision-making. Subsequently, I worked for the Deutsche Umweltstiftung in the Commission on Nuclear Waste Management in the German Parliament. The main focus of my work was on the structuring of citizen participation in the search for an area for nuclear waste disposal. Since August 2016 I have been working on the practical implementation of the opening of research and collections in the Museum für Naturkunde and am always happy to receive ideas and suggestions.
