I am a Senior Fellow at The Arctic Institute. My research focuses on human-environment relations, cross-cultural communication, and geopolitics in the circumpolar north. In addition, I am currently writing my PhD at the Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology at the University of Vienna.
Previously, I was a researcher at the Vienna University of Economics, and have worked at the Austrian Cultural Forum, the Austrian Chamber of Commerce, the European Commission, and the NGO Crisis Action.
During my studies, I received several awards including the St. Gallen Wings of Excellence Award and the Dr. Alois Mock-Prize for her thesis research.
