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.
