The right temperature matters – whether in technical processes, for the quality of food and medicines, or the lifetime of electronic components and batteries. For this purpose, temperature indicators record (un)desired temperature increases that can be read out later. Researchers in the gro ... more

Nadine Goldenstein studied Marine Environmental Sciences at the University of Bremen, Germany. Subsequently she worked as a scientist in Organic Biogeochemistry at MARUM, Bremen, where she concentrated her research activities on the investigation of microbial metabolic processes, with a focus on the global nitrogen and carbon cycles and characterizing microorganisms in (marine) environments. As part of her scientific activities, she was involved in the organization and implementation of various publicly relevant high-profile events in Bremen. Subsequently, Nadine Goldenstein worked at the Thünen Institute of Fisheries Ecology on studying effects of anthropogenic environmental pollutants such as polychlorinated biphenyls and trinitrotoluene and their degradation products on fish as food. She cooperated with media to communicate the results of the projects to politics and the general public. Since 2019, Nadine Goldenstein has been working in science communication and management at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU).
Rather knowing than believing. Scientifically sound information enables every member of our society to form a differentiated opinion and thus to act responsibly for a life in accordance with our environment.
Nadine Goldenstein works in science communication in the area of Sensory Sciences. Cooperating with scientists in this field, she disseminates scientific results on hearing, vision, taste, smell and mechano-sensation in the form of publications, public events and via social media in an easily comprehensible manner. In addition, she is currently pursuing smaller projects in science communication research, which help her analyze the effectiveness of her activities and define suitable target groups for individual communication formats. The results of these studies are continuously being incorporated into the communication concepts for the Sensory Sciences at FAU.
In 2014, Nadine Goldenstein received the MARUM Research Award for Marine Science for her master thesis “Microbial ecology in deep sea hydrothermal vent systems – a novel approach for lipid biomarker studies on hydrothermal sulfide deposits”.
Nadine Goldenstein's work focuses on the communication of scientific research in the Sensory Sciences. Her in-depth analytical-chemical knowledge helps her to prepare complex scientific matters and develop target group-specific communication formats. The focus of her work, therein, is on human-environment interaction.
