Bio: Since November 2018 Lisa is project officer in the APECS International Directorate.

Her field of study is marine geoscience. She graduated from the University of Bremen with a bachelor’s degree in marine geology and micropaleontology. She went on to the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, to gain her master’s degree in marine geology. Her thesis was part of a collaboration with the Alfred-Wegener-Institute Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI), sending her on an expedition to the Arctic Ocean. She studied the so called “Brown Layers”, investigated the age model and paleoenvironmental significance, and reconstructed the climate history from Mid-Pleistocene to Holocene at the core location in the Chukchi Sea. During a stay at the University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS), she learned about the changing infrastructural challenges in the Arctic Regions.

From 2017 to 2018 she gathered experience at the AWI in Bremerhaven in the communication and media department. There she organized events to represent the AWI-research in the general public. She took on responsibility for the cooperation with other scientific institutions and networks.

All these former experiences within polar research increased her enthusiasm about the Arctic Regions. Hence, she is now excited to be part of the APECS team, to support the global interdisciplinary connections of young polar scientists and to communicate topics of polar research into the broad public.

In addition to this position she is project officer for the Germany Arctic Office.
