Robin Tschötschel is a PhD candidate at the Amsterdam School of Communication Research, University of Amsterdam. Under the working title “Climate change communication amid a political Gestalt shift”, Robin analyses how media coverage of climate change in Germany and the US has taken on new forms over the past few years. The shift mirrors transforming political identities and public discourses — and requires scientists and activists to respond to a changing playing field. Robin holds an MSc in Social Science Research (University of Amsterdam) and a bachelor’s degree in Economics (University of Vienna).
