Curriculum Vitae

Dr. Bettina Hamann has been the program manager of the Urban management program since 2005. Bettina studied landscape planning and landscape ecology at the Universität für Bodenkultur, Vienna, and landscape design at the University of Manchester. In 2007, she completed her doctoral dissertation, "Ecologic and socio-economic developments at the Southern fringe of the Dsungarian Basin, Xinjiang, China, in the late 20th century" at the TU Berlin. The research for her PhD was carried out in collaboration with the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Urumqi, China.

Bettina Hamann has developed and organised approximately 20 tailor-made short training courses for international experts in the field of planning and environment. All of these were externally funded, mainly by German and European institutions of development cooperation. These courses focused mainly on questions of waste, water and transport management, urban ecology, urban conservation and good governance. She prepared the first intake of the international Urban management Masters program in the year 2005 and has since been responsible for this postgraduate Masters course.
