"Even though anthropology will always be my ‘intellectual home base’, I am very much looking forward to pushing its boundaries in the lively interdisciplinary setting of IRI THESys as far as possible" Anja Klein

Anja Klein is a doctoral researcher at IRI THESys. In May 2018, she received her Master of Arts from the Institute of European Ethnology, HU Berlin, where she since works as a research associate. Her thesis dealt with “Knowledge Practices in the Modelling of ‘Socio-Ecological Coevolutions’. On Sinplification, Experimentation, Visualization and Alignment”. Since October 2018 Anja is also a guest researcher at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research where she will collaborate with the flagship project COPAN.

Anja's PhD project at IRI THESys will ask how ways of knowing human-environment relations in anthropology and in environmental sciences, esp. in socio-ecological models and research inspired by complex systems theory, can be articulated with each other in order to better understand questions and challenges crossing disciplinary boundaries.
