Katharina recently completed her BSc Spatial Planning at TU Dortmund University and and now supports the team at the Chair of Land Policy and Land Management as a research assistant besides her master studies. In the student project "Grund zum Wohnen" she already conducted research on the interests and motivations of landowners in relation to municipal strategies of densification. It is therefore not inconvenient that she will be collaborating in the SUBDENSE research project with project partners from Liverpool (UK), Paris (FR) and Dresden (DE) on the topic of suburban densification.
