I graduated from the University of Mainz (Germany) with a Diploma in Physical Geography and followed up with a M.Sc. in Computational Science from George Mason University (Fairfax, VA, US).

As a research data manager, I am in charge of the management, archiving and publication of data produced in the CRC projects. The data management team and I are working on developing the infrastructure and tools to archive and retrieve those data products. I am currently a member of several network organizations (COPDESS, RDA, NFDI4Earth) supporting FAIR and Open Data policies and the advancement of metadata standards. 

Prior to my recent work, I was the CRC scientific coordinator and managed the administrative and financial activities of the CRC and the IRTG graduate program for the first funding period (2016-2019). Previous to this, I joined the FUB Geochemistry group to coordinate the application process of the CRC proposal to the DFG (2015).

Before joining the CRC, I was involved in projects at U.S. (NOAA, Earth Tech, George-Mason University, AeroKinetics) and German (PIK, FUB) research institutions and in the private economy sector using large data sets from observations and models to investigate feedback processes in the earth system in the area of air quality and bio-atmosphere interactions.

Currently, I am a member of TRR 170's Gender Board.
