Judith Bopp
Research Fellow at Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society, LMU, Germany.

Dr. Judith Bopp is a human geographer with a particular interest in organic farming practices and the interrelations of food, health, and ecology.

She studied cultural geography, French, and sociology at the Universities of Würzburg and Rennes, conducting her master’s thesis on socio-spatial dynamics in a high-rise neighborhood as catalyzed by its architectural features.

She received her PhD in human geography from the University of Cologne through her empirical research “New Momentum to Bangkok’s Organic Food Movement: Inter-spersed Scenes Lead by Mindful Pioneers” in 2016. In 2017, she was a postdoctoral fellow for the Indo-German Center for Sustainability IGCS at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IITM), and she worked as research assistant at Kiel University (2018–20) and University of Vechta (2020–23). 

For her current project funded by Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), she investigates how rural smallholder households in Thailand improve their resilience to overlapping social-ecological crises through adopting organic farming practices.
