I study how we, as societies, debate politically pressing issues — in particular climate change, social justice, and identity. Currently, I am employed as a postdoc at Universität Hamburg (Germany). I also teach and write about science and politics, aiming to bring some insightful social research to a broader audience.
Over the past years, my research focused on how the media portray the science and politics of climate change in Germany and the United States. As a culmination of that work, in March 2022, I obtained a PhD in communication science at the University of Amsterdam (link to dissertation). You can find more detail about that side of my work in my academic CV, or by following one of the links in the menu.
I enjoy making research and scientific knowledge accessible and useful for people that strive to change this world for the better. Have a look at what I do and my ideas of how I could help you or your organisation below. If it inspires you and you have a great idea, I'd be thrilled to help you realise it. Just write me an email.
