Julia is currently pursuing her Ph.D. in soil biodiversity at the University of Vigo in a project funded by the European Commission. She completed her Masters in Sustainable Resource Management at the Technical University Munich in 2020. She is passionate about the protection of biodiversity and solving current agricultural challenges.
Her Thesis on Nutrient Cycles and the role of microorganisms in regard of agroecological movements showed her the importance of ecosystem services but also the empowerment of farmers. She is fascinated of natural feedback systems and the cultural aspect of farming.
Julia spends her free-time as much as possible in the outdoors, talking to farmers, being involved in environmental discussions. Her vision is to stop the ongoing erosion of biodiversity and to give farmers their power, knowledge and voices back. In SIRN she sees the possibility to plant a seed to do so.
