Biography

After successfully graduation from high-school in 2007,  Marina Blohm studied energy and environmental management (industrial engineering) at the University of Applied Sciences and the Europa-Universität Flensburg. As part of her Bachelor's degree, she completed a semester abroad at the Université de Nantes at the IUT in Saint-Nazaire and, in addition to economic knowledge in the field of logistics, also acquired basic French skills. She then completed her practical semester at the company PNE Wind AG in the area of project development for onshore wind farms in Germany. Following this, she wrote her Bachelor's thesis on the topic of "Repowering of wind turbines in Germany".
She used her Master's thesis "Increasing the attractiveness of public bus transport for commuters in the municipality of Sonderborg" at ProjectZero in Sonderborg, Denmark, to expand her knowledge of everyday mobility needs and develop solution strategies for the municipality.

From 2012 to the beginning of 2016, Marina Blohm was a project developer for wind farms at the company WKN AG. During this time, she gained intensive experience in the implementation of wind farm projects at local level. Intensive communication with residents and decision-makers about needs and fears was, in addition to good project management, her basis for the successful implementation of several wind farms.

Since March 2016, she has been working at the Europa-Universität Flensburg as a research assistant in the field of energy and environmental management. Between March 2016 and December 2018, she worked in the MENA Select research project, which focused on creating energy scenarios for countries in the MENA region up to the year 2050. This involved conducting participatory workshops in the three study countries, Morocco, Jordan and Tunisia, and training national stakeholders in energy system modelling. After completing the research project, Marina Blohm is currently working on her dissertation on "The transition towards 100% renewable energy systems in the MENA region". In addition to research, she is also active in teaching in the field of Environmental Economics.
