    Under the current working title "In the thick of a Gestaltshift: climate change and the public sphere", my PhD research was dedicated to investigating how news media portray political and scientific consensus and controversy about climate change and how citizens respond to these portrayals.

    In three related studies comparing Germany and the United States, I showed that in the former, climate change is primarily debated as a political, rather than a scientific issue. This results in political actors across the spectrum increasingly incorporating 'green' ideas into their profiles. In addition, citizens don't respond to information about climate science the same way they do in the US, where politically motivated attacks on climate science are more pervasive.

    With most empirical research done, my current focus lies on drawing overarching theoretical conclusions about how to understand the current state of the public conversation about climate change. I also develop and disseminate recommendations for scientists, journalists, politicians and citizens who want to play a role in making a just transition to a carbon-neutral future happen.
