Doctoral Researcher

Heindriken Dahlmann is a predoctoral researcher at IRI THESys currently holding the Humboldt Research Track Scholarship. Within this scope, she is working on her PhD research proposal which focuses on the impacts of climate change on local water resources and global virtual water flows. Heindriken is interested in the multi-scale interlinkages between climate change, water resources and society, and particularly aspects of water and food security. For this purpose, she aims to apply an interdisciplinary approach combining quantitative and qualitative research methods. Her regional focus is on the Middle East and North Africa.

Heindriken obtained a Bachelor of Science in Geography from the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and a Master of Science in Geography of Global Change from the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg. During her studies, she spent semesters abroad at the German-Jordanian University in Amman and at the Stockholm University. Before coming to IRI THESys, she joined the Alexandria Research Center for Adaptation to Climate Change (ARCA) in Egypt as a visiting researcher.
