• WEINER Monika

    My professional life is dedicated to the communication of science.
    I did my first steps into the world of journalism at a local newspaper while I was studying Geology at the Ludwig Maximilians University of Munich. My goal to become a science journalist was quite an exotic idea in the 1980ies – nobody in Germany could imagine a female science reporter.
    After graduating I started working as an editor at different newspapers and magazines in Germany and also in Spain. Later I became a freelance writer, focusing on science and technology.
    In 1991 I had the unique chance to spend a year at MIT at the Knight Science Journalism fellowship. I am still grateful for that opportunity.
    Another step of my career was working in the communication department at Fraunhofer Gesellschaft, the largest Organization for applied reserach in Europe. For more than ten years I was senior editor of the English Fraunhofer magazine.
    In the fall of 2012 I was invited to UCSB as a journalist in residence. 
    Since 2015 I am working again as a freelance science journalist, focusing on science and engineering. I am especially interested in the relevance of technology for the future of society.
