I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Technische Universität Berlin, a PostDoc alumni from the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research (IZW) in Berlin with a Ph.D. in Urban Ecology from the University of Melbourne and German Diplom in Biology from the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich. Since my PhD, I am passionate about combining ecological research with social science theories. I strongly believe that conservation is much more effective when we also understand people since most threats to wildlife and their habitats are caused by human behaviour. So, I love to come from ‘both sides’: from the wildlife as well as from the human side to find solutions for ‘shared urban landscapes’ in which both coexist and thrive. When it comes to wildlife, my major passion are bats. When it comes to people, I am interested in questions around what drives the acceptability of wildlife management strategies and effective communication (e.g. photo stimuli, storytelling). Working with vibrant colleagues and students, I enjoy conversations around ethics in conservation practices (acknowledging that our approach to science is never free from our own values).
