Hi, I'm Nina.

Making the abstract tangible is my passion.

I am a German science journalist with a master’s degree in physics. 


Anyone can understand science! I am convinced of that. You just have to make it accessible – and that’s precisely where I see my mission. 


Why? I am fascinated by the knowledge of how our world is structured, how it works from small to large scales, and how we can use this knowledge for technological developments. I want to pass on this fascination.


By combining a basic scientific understanding (from my master’s degree in physics) and journalistic knowledge (from my editorial traineeship at the production company Bilderfest and my subsequent work), I can present complex research and science content in a way everyone can understand.
