Her research interest lies in the influence of political institutions and norms of marine and climate governancne on socio-economic and environmental challenges regarding marine resource use.  

The presentation gives an overview over her current research portfolio centered around question of public participation and legitimacy in the context of multi-level marine governance. This encompasses the study of determinants of stakeholder participation and knowledge integration in regional ocean governance arrangements (e.g. HELCOM; Arctic Council), and analysis of local acceptance of European marine policies (e.g. MSFD). A particular focus of her current empirical research is the Baltic Sea and in the Arctic region - by using qualitative methods such as interviews and focus groups discussion, as well as mixed-method approaches.
