Professional development

Dr. Juliane Welz studied geography at the University of Leipzig and completed her doctorate in the field of human geography at the University of Hamburg (2012). From 2007 to 2016, she worked as a research associate at the Helmholtz Center for Environmental Research (UFZ) in the Department of Urban and Environmental Sociology. Here she dealt with topics related to social- and environmental sciences in cities in the international context, including urban transformations in Latin American megacities and urban vulnerability and adaptation to climate change. Dr. Welz has many years of experience working in inter-and transdiciplinary research cooperations. In July of 2017 she joined the team of the Professionalizing Knowledge Transfer Processes Unit at Fraunhofer IMW.
