Sabrina Kirschke is a Senior Research Associate at UNU-FLORES. She contributes to the research, academic, and capacity development activities in water resources management within the resource nexus. Before joining UNU-FLORES, she worked as a research associate in several water-related projects at the Helmholtz-Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) in Magdeburg, Germany and as a consultant and intern at the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit und Entwicklung GmbH in Eschborn and Uganda. She is particularly interested in conceptualising complexities of water quality-related nexus problems and to developing governance strategies to addressing these problems in practice. Her work refers to various regional levels (e.g., transboundary, national, local) and regulations (e.g., European Water Framework Directive). She is experienced with interdisciplinary and problem-oriented research, in-depth cooperation with stakeholders, and the application of qualitative and quantitative research methods. During her PhD, she worked on the role of complexity in addressing the water quality challenge.
