Caroline Ring is doing science journalism and evolutionary biology. And comics. She is a freelance journalist for life science topics in Berlin.


Caroline always had a vivid interest in two things: first, written words and second, everything that is walking on more than four legs. While the latter one pushed her through her biology studies, the fist one brought her to science journalism.

It might be unusual for a kid from Berlin city to aim at becoming a natural scientist. But starting from this point, Caroline first acquired a Bachelor’s degree for biology at the University of Hamburg and later her Master’s at the Humboldt University of Berlin. Meanwhile, her destination changed to science journalism.

She first got in touch with writing when she observed the periphery of the World Football Championship from the view of the local BILD editorial in Dortmund. During her Bachelor’s, she wrote about start ups, benchmarks and business angels for the german issue of the Financial Times and Impulse. The mentoring program of the Initiative Science Journalism allowed her insights at the radio station hr2 kultur in Frankfurt/M and at the PM Magazin in Munich.

Caroline has been an editor at the science section at WELT/WELT AM SONNTAG and a project manager at the Museum für Naturkunde, Berlin. She is still writing for WELT/WELT AM SONNTAG and also, Wunderwelt Wissen and PM Magazin, among others.
