Frederike Böhm, M. Sc.

About me

I am a marine scientist by training with a strong interest in marine conservation ecology and human-nature interactions.

As a project scientist at CAU I am developing my thoughts on marine environmental ethics - currently, I am collaborating with colleagues on a  Future Ocean project focusing on the environmental ethics of marine restoration.
