Personal profile

Personal information

Katharina Schulze is a PhD candidate in the Environmental Geography department, part of the Institute for Environmental Studies (IVM). Her research focuses on the competing claims of land resources for biodiversity protection, climate change mitigation and food production and how those will affect future land use patterns. This includes the conflicts between land users and beneficiaries and changing global trade patterns of conservation and climate change mitigation. She is currently researching how the Land Degradation Neutrality framework from the UNCCD translates for application in land use modelling, using Turkey as case study.

Before starting her PhD, Katharina finished the dual master’s program “Environmental Science” at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (BoKu), Vienna and at the University of Copenhagen. She specialized in ‘Biodiversity and Ecosystems’, as well as in ‘Environmental Management’.
