Research interest

I am dedicated to critical geography dealing with questions of environmental justice, critical mapping and postcolonial geography. At the same time I am having a background in geoinformatics and biodiversity research. I would like to combine these research fields and learn more about implementing integrative geography approaches.

PhD-Project description: With the help of large-scale remote sensing a method to globally examine geoinformation about biome-specific socio-biophysical conditions in and around Biosphere Reserves will be developed. Responding to the need for a more holistic appraisal of human-nature relations in the context of Biosphere Reserves’ effectiveness, the concepts of environmental justice and the ecosystem approach will be included in the assessment.
