Alexandra studied Business and Political Science and received her PhD from Münster University. During her studies she went to South Africa to conduct research on political and economic changes in the multi-fragmented post-apartheid society which led to her thesis. Alexandra was a strategic consultant before she worked for the non-profit organization “Ich kann Leben retten” which aims to implement basic life support as one of the main life skills in every person’s life. She still holds a position on the Advisory Board. Inspired by the unique ambition of THE NEW INSTITUTE, she wants to contribute to its goals and joined the institute.
