About me

In my PhD project, I have the chance to combine my background in journalism and communication with global health and epidemiology. My research centers around risk communication and infectious disease outbreaks, with a special focus on the Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone. At KI I am also involved in science communication research, investigating the influence of press releases from medical universities on media articles.

Apart from my work at KI, I am an Ignorance Hunter at the Gapminder Foundation. I help to develop and test new fact questions around global trends, hunting topics where chimpanzees outsmart humans.
