Susanne Schneider studied Biology at the Technical University of Munich, Germany, from 1990 to 1996, where she also successfully defended her PhD in 2000: The Trophic Index of Macrophytes – a New Tool for Indicating the Trophic State of Running Waters. She continued as an academic assistant at the Limnological Station of the Technical University of Munich, where she was granted the status of a university lecturer for “limnology” after finishing her habilitation on the ecology and indicator qualities of submerged macrophytes in 2005. Since 2007, she works as a scientist at the Norwegian Institute for Water Research (NIVA). Her main research interests center around the ecology of macrophytes and benthic algae, including their use as indicators for eutrophication, acidification and ecological status assessment. She is especially interested in charophytes, their ecology, physiology, molecular biology and role as ecosystem engineers.
