Biography

Laura Bomm is as university assistant (pre-doc) at the research platform PLENTY (Plastics in the Environment and Society) since September 2018. She studied Forest- and Nature Conservation (B.Sc.) and Communication, Health and Life Science (M.Sc.) at Wageningen University in the Netherlands. She graduated with a thesis on people’s risk perception of microplastics. During her research internship in the project “Plastics-Publics-Politics“ at the Munich Centre of Technology in Society she contributed to a media analysis and studied how German media are constructing the issue of microplastics. Her interests in the interactions between plastics, the environment and society lead her to the PhD program of PLENTY.
