I'm a freelance journalist and member of the journalist collective Selbstlaut.

I work on investigations and feature stories related to the environment and climate change. Currently, I am mostly covering EU climate policy, energy, and the mobility transition for the German media Tagesspiegel Background. 

Working as a freelancer has allowed me to accompany beekeepers in Germany, to track supply chains from soy plantations in Brazil, to spend time with the FARC in Colombia, to meet former Boko Haram members in Nigeria, and to visit hospitals in Sierra Leone. My favorite kind of assignments are cross-border investigations since I am convinced that journalism hugely benefits from international collaborations and global perspectives on today's challenges. 

I studied Political Science and International Development in Vienna and completed the Erasmus Mundus journalism master's degree programme in Aarhus, Sydney, and Amsterdam. My thesis looked at the role perception of journalists reporting on the Colombian conflict.
