Teaching

My fascination for the social world is what I aspire to share throughout my teaching. I aim to inspire curiosity and facilitate students’ capacity to solve problems independently, to integrate multiple perspectives and methods, and to reflect critically on their own and others’ approaches.

I teach Bachelor and Master-level seminars and lead PhD workshops in the areas of environmental policy and social network analysis in German, English, and French.
