Biographical Sketch

My research interests include International Disaster Response in Complex Emergencies, Civil-Military Cooperation in Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Response scenarios as well as Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) regimes at the global level and its impact to national and local policy. I have worked in various local and national resilience-building projects which deal with disasters and the environment as well as cross-cutting concerns such as poverty, migration, sustainable livelihoods and disaster risk governance.
