Lina Röschel is a research associate with the Ocean Governance Research Group at IASS since 2021 with a research focus on the ocean-climate nexus. Her research interests include the governance of "blue carbon" ecosystems as marine nature-based solutions for climate mitigation (see BMU-funded project "Blue Carbon: Coastal and Marine Ecosystems for Climate Mitigation"). In her current project "Ocean-NETs", Lina conducts research on the governance of ocean-based negative emission technologies (NETs), the deployment of which can potentially enhance the natural carbon store of the oceans. In applying a co-creative approach, Lina explores the challenges and synergies for good governance of ocean-based NETs within the regional and global ocean governance framework.
Prior to joining IASS, Lina Röschel was a Researcher at Ecologic Institute in Berlin, Germany, where she worked on projects related to European nature policy. As a student, she worked at Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research and the NewClimate Institute, Berlin, and interned with the United Nations Division for Sustainable Development, Policy Analysis Branch. She holds an MSc in Physical Geography of Human-Environment-Systems from Humboldt University, with a study abroad at New York University.
