Maren holds a PhD in neuroscience and is the co-founder as well as the editor-in-chief of Perspective Daily, Germany's first ad-free online magazine for Constructive Journalism. It launched after a successful crowdfunding campaign with more than 12.000 members in June 2016. The interdisciplinary team publishes one in-depth article per day and uses innovative digital tools to optimize the reading experience. Maren’s passion is the brain and how it »tricks us« into false and misleading ideas. As a neuroscientist and spokesperson for Constructive Journalism she argues that we need to understand the brain in order to practice journalism.
