Curriculum vitae 

During and after my studies of Landscape Ecology and Communication Sciences at the Westfaelische Wilhelms-Universitaet Muenster (Diploma 2005) I was working for different employers. In a planning agency I gained practial experiences in designing nature and museum exhibitions as well as in environmental communications in general. In the Congress Center Essen I have been responsible for events and meetings as PCO - Professional Congress Organizer. After this I have worked in the DFG-Biodiversity-Exploratories central coordination office (BEO) at the University of Potsdam.

Since April 2011 I am working at the BGBM Berlin-Dahlem. From April 2011 until November 2013 I have been, together with Walter Berendsohn, responsibel for the project Coordination of GBIF-D. During that time I have been the representative Node Manager GBIF Germany and a member of the German GBIF-Delegation as well as the Assistant of the Speaker of the GBIF-D–IT-Commission.
Since December 2013 I am working as Scientific Assistant in the Research Group Biodiversity Informatics at BGBM for the DFG-funded project "GFBio - German Federation of Biological Data". 
Research interests 
Additionally to my interest in biodiversity informatics I am interested in environmental- and science communication with a focus on "citizenscience" and public outreach. With strong interest I am observing the current implementation of IPBES - Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services.
