With the "Buildings and Heat Networks" team, she works on energy-saving buildings, a climate-neutral heat supply, and resource-conserving construction in existing buildings. As a social scientist, she is interested in the practical implementation of the heat transition in everyday life. To this end it is crucial to gain the support of stakeholders, municipalities and citizens.
