My teaching scope

In my opinion, there is an urgent need to train students in interdisciplinary approaches beyond classic boundaries of scientific fields, especially during basic courses at the start of their education. I purposefully contribute to this objective, by preparing students for emerging challenges, and by giving them qualifications required for non-academic career paths.

Contributions at the university and research institute level illustrate my track record in this respect, with courses on geomorphology, environmental seismology, geospatial data analysis and management, and GFZ-internal and EGU-wide workshops on soft skills.

I have aimed at supporting the career development of students at national and European level, with a focus on shifting the depressing gender imbalance, building of networks and providing access to research tools.

Currenty, I contribute to the "geo"-component of the B.Sc. Ecosystem Management degree course at the Georg-August-University Göttingen. In close relation with my research scope, I welcome student's initiatives to ask for thesis opportunities. I am happy to advice and help developing theses themes of timely environmental relevance, including topics like:
Flood impact in central Euope, climate change affected coastal dynamics, hazards and transients in mountains, biogeomorphology and habitat changes due to landuse dynamics. If you want to learn more about these general topics, just contact me or come to my office.
Im Moment trage ich vor allem zur "Geo"-Komponente des B.Sc. Studiengangs Ökosystem-Management, Georg-August-Universität Göttingen bei. Eng mit meiner Forschung verbunden freue ich mich über studentische Anfragen zu Abschlussarbeiten. Ich helfe gern bei der Entwicklung und Betreuung von Themen mit gesellschaftlicher Relevanz und Aktualität, wie zum Beispiel zu:
Hochwasserimpakt in Mitteleuropa, Klimawandelauswirkungen auf Küstendynamik, Gefahren und Transienten im Hochgebirge und Habitatveränderungen durch Landnutzungswandel. Wenn Sie mehr über diese generellen Themen erfahren möchten, kontaktieren Sie mich oder kommen Sie im Büro vorbei.
