Dr Mirjam Roeder

Research Associate, Tyndall Centre

Mirjam's research interests focuses on climate change impacts and adaptation and mitigation strategies for agriculture, food systems and biofuels, implications of land use change, as well as food security, trade and sustainability issues. 

Apart from her interest in climate change research Mirjam has a strong background in agriculture, development and gender studies. Mirjam holds a degree in agricultural sciences from Humboldt University, Berlin. In her PhD research at Humboldt University, she examined meal security in urban areas in Central Sudan using a cultural ecological approach which takes environmental, technological, socio-economic, political, social and cultural matters into account and analyses the interactions within a system and between the human being, society and nature.

In her research Mirjam strongly follows interdisciplinary approaches which support the examination of the different facets of problems by taking a whole system views of research questions.
