Personlig profil


My main research interests lay in exploring qualities of environmental governance such as participation, accountability, transparency in a multi-level context. In addition, I focus on understanding of how policy change occurs within multi-level governance. In my PhD thesis, I have studied these topics on the example of nature conservation governance in Post-Socialist EU countries. I have particularly demonstrated the development of governance arrangements in temporal and territorial scales. Over the course of my PhD work, I gained an extensive experience with fieldwork, interviewing and observatory research methods.

Currently, I explore the EU LULUCF negotiation process and look at how and with which means actors networks influence decision-making within governance arrangements. In particular, I am interested in exploring how different factors (access, power, resources, coalitions within policy network) enable (or constrain) lobbying efforts of involved actors.

In addition to academic experience, I have worked as a consultant with the UNEP Convention on Migratory Species, focusing on supporting implementation of various policy initiatives in Central Asia, fundraising and public outreach. I have also provided expert support to implementation of sustainable natural resource management in Central Asia to the German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ).
