After various journalism internships in Russia and Germany, Johanna studied economics and philosophy. During her undergrad, she worked as a research assistant to Prof. Cameron Hepburn at the Oxford Martin school. Johanna completed a traineeship with the European Commission (DG Clima). From 2017 to 2019 she worked as Associate at Aurora Energy Research, an electricity market modelling company, on system integration of renewables, with a focus on the German and Polish electricity markets.

When she is not thinking about climate or energy topics, Johanna is likely to be found on her road bike, touring bike, hiking or climbing.
