Bio: Lisa is a marine geoscientist, now working in project management in the research environment. Since she experienced the Arctic Regions herself, most recently as a media coordinator during the MOSAiC expedition, she has been inspired and enthusiastic about its uniqueness and beauty, motivating her for raising awareness for its vulnerability and protection.

As a young person in science she found home in the field of young researcher engagement, science communication and knowledge transfer. She is always impressed by the high motivation and enthusiasm of you - young researchers! With APECS she wants to support them and give opportunities to raise and to integrate them into the broader polar community.

Already 2018-2020, she was Project Officer in the APECS International Directorate and did now return to the APECS Office, being engaged in the EU project Arctic PASSION. Besides the project-based work aiming to communicate the project topics and results to young audiences and stakeholders, she will support administrational directorate tasks.

Additionally, Lisa is affiliated with the German Arctic Office, an AWI unit to promote knowledge transfer from science into politics.

Lisa is looking forward to the next years working in this inspiring APECS environment!
