I´ve been research associate within the MONA project since September 2013.

Referring to the MONA research approach and database, my PhD project investigates inter- and transdisciplinary sustainability research in the German research system.

My wider field of interest: Theory and philosophy of science, empirical science studies, inter- and transdisciplinary research, meta analysis, environmental sociology and sustainability research.

I´m experienced in quantitative empirical methods and secondary data analysis.
