Research

Simon Schneider earned a German diploma in geophysics from the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University Frankfurt, where he also worked in science communication and education with the Geophysics and Earth Science departments.  He participated in international surveys as scientist and media relations specialist, traveling to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Lake Bosumtwi, Ghana, and aboard the research vessel MS Sonne in the southern waters of the Atlantic and Indian Ocean. For a decade, Simon has been a public outreach manager of the research and development program GEOTECHNOLOGIEN in Potsdam. He has served as co-editor for the online magazine The Euroscientist, studied public relations at the University for Management and Communications UMC Potsdam, and earned his PhD in communication sciences from the Freie Universität Berlin. Today, Simon is managing the research focus Earth Sciences at the University of Potsdam, Germany.
