I support scientists at DIfE in all matters related to the acquisition of third-party funding. Thereby, my focus lies on funding granted by EU and the Leibniz Association. I aid in strategic design, preparation of budgets, clarification of internal concerns, proposal writing and editing, interview preparation, and reporting. I am also corresponding person for international affairs, as well as for gender aspects in research and science.
