Nathalie Baumann has worked for over 15 years in Urban Ecology and on different measures to improve biodiversity in cities, like green infrastructure. As well as doing research and teaching at the University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW), she has researched, inter alia, on ground-nesting birds adapting to urban situations. She is consulting authorities, companies and politicians in green infrastructure in order to develop guidelines, standards and action plans. She has developed and is teaching different courses (i.e. www.natureenville.ch) for professionals for green infrastructure and urban ecology in Switzerland and Europe.
Her approach is based in promoting ecology, biodiversity and ecosystem services in urban landscapes based on systemic approaches (sustainable development).
