Judith Hermann is working as a research associate in the ISIGET project since August 2022, investigating systemic impacts of the global energy transition with a focus on countries in the Global South. Before that, she was already part of the same project as a student assistant for nine months. She studied International Relations (B.A.) at the University of Erfurt and is currently finishing her Master's degree in International Development Studies at Philipps University Marburg. Her research interests lie particularly in the intersection of climate & sustainability policy, global development, and international climate justice. In her thesis, she is working on the EU's planned Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM). Before and during her studies, she lived in Argentina, Bolivia and Paraguay for a total of 1.5 years, working on rights of indigenous groups and international cooperation.
