Biography

 

I studied geography, sociology and development economics at the University of Bonn with a focus on food security, vulnerability research and migration. For my final thesis I have conducted research in the south of Chad, where I was working on the topic of political ecology of food security in the context of oil production. Within that my main emphasis was on vulnerability and resilience of food systems and livelihoods. In October 2013 I started as a Ph.D. student in the second phase of a DFG funded project on the resilience, collapse and reorganization in complex coupled social-ecological systems (SES) in Africa”, within which I will work on trans-local relations and the reorganization of socio-ecological systems in Kenya.

Dissertation project: Trans-local relations and the reorganization of socio-ecological systems in Kenya.
