Secretariat of the Standing Senate Commission on Fundamental Issues of Biological Diversity of the German Research Foundation (DFG)
I am a forester, ecologist, and social-environmental scientist, with a strong interest and background in wildlife ecology and management as well as nature conservation policy and practice. As such, my research work focusses on issues related to biodiversity monitoring and data integration, research cooperation and biodiversity as well as environmental policy (IPBES, CBD, SDGs).
My work at the IPS focusses on the coordination of the DFG Standing Senate Commission on Fundamental Issues of Biological Diversity, which regards issues having an impact on the German biodiversity research agenda.
