Anja studied Geodesy at the Dresden University of Technology between 1993 and 1998. Already as a student she participated in scientific expeditions for example to Greenland. Her main research interest is the application of Synthetic Aperture Radar Interferometry (InSAR) for glaciological and geophysical studies in combination with field techniques like GPS. In 2003 she received her PhD in Engineering with a thesis about the tides in Lake Vostok, the largest subglacial lake in Antarctica. Starting in 2003 she took part in a bilateral cooperation between the university in Dresden and the Centro de Estudios Científicos which gave reason to several visits to Chile to realize field work near Lago O’Higgins and at the volcanoes in the Xth region. At the end of 2005, Anja came to CECs as a Postdoc financed by the German Academic Exchange Service DAAD to realize a project about the glaciers in the southernmost Andes. In January 2006 she participated in the Lake Ellsworth expedition to Antarctica where she realized a GPS programme in the vicinity of the station Patriot Hills. Since 2007 she has been the director of the Ring project "Stability and recent behaviour of glaciers in the Antarctic Peninsula - the interactions with ice shelves" focusing on the glaciers in Wordie Bay.
