Anja Milena Wegner is a transdisciplinary researcher and marine science educator. In her academic work, she examines questions about the coexistence and cocreation of humans and marine organisms. With her PhD project, she develops a new approach to collaborations between art and science by combining quantitative biology and environmental philosophy. The artistic imagination of her collaborations informs her approach to the marine fish in whose social behaviour she is interested and allow her to contextualise her biological work within a broader scope (see Fish Architecture for more).

Education is the other focus of her work. Her workshops or pedagogical interventions revolve around the ocean or biology. As a pedagogical engineer, Anja tailors her workshops and interventions to different target groups, such as teenagers, art or biology students, or the general public. Her interventions are either project-based problem-solving workshops or pedagogical experiences.

Anja is a PhD student in the Jordan Lab and funded by Max Planck Institute of Animal Behaviour and TBA21 Academy. She is based in Germany but spends extensive periods at the Alligator Head Foundation in Jamaica and at STARESO Corsica for her fieldwork. She received a B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Life Sciences from the University of Konstanz and a M.Res. in Education and Technology at the Université de Paris, France.
