Dr.  Ellen Gottschämmer privat

Dr. Ellen Gottschämmer was a senior lecturer and researcher at the Geophysical Institute (GPI) until April 2022. She now works at the department of Mechanical Engineering at KIT.

Ellen developed innovative teaching formats and conducted lectures which directly incorporated current research topics, often carried out at remote locations outside the classroom. Student counseling, study program development, module coordination and accreditation were part of her duties. Furthermore she was Head of the Geophysics school lab, which she founded in 2012.

Ellen’s research was conducted in the framework of the Seismology and Natural Hazards group.
