courses I teach and my teaching training
Project ‘Catch me if you can’: Winter and summer semester 2021/2022 at the TU Berlin with BSc. In this project, we are exploring phenological mismatches in predator-prey relationships in urban areas with bats and nocturnal flying insects as role models. More information can be found here (in German). Dress warm – field work in winter nights ahead!
Project ‘Urban Biodiversity in a changing world’: Summer semester 2021 at the TU Berlin, BSc and MSc students. In this student project, we explore the overarching question how to create shared urban habitats for biodiversity and people in a changing world. A changing world, which does not only include climate change, but also the current COVID- 19 situation. In this project, we collaborate again with DataCamp.
Project ‘Urban Cemeteries – What values do they have for biodiversity and visitor?’: Winter semester 2019/2020 and summer semester 2020 at the TU Berlin, BSc students. In this project, we collaborate with DataCamp.

Currently, I am participating in the Berlin Centre for Higher Education (BZHL) certificate programme which provides systematic, advanced higher education training that is led by national and international standards. Courses include ethics or storytelling in teaching.
