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


Caroline Ring holds two passions: one for the written word, and one for all living beings with more than four legs. The latter one made her a studied biologist, while the former drove her into science journalism.

It might be unusual for a Berlin city kid to wish to become a naturalist in the future. For Caroline Ring, this plan turned into biology studies at Hamburg University (B.Sc.) and later at Berlin’s Humboldt University (M.Sc.). As time went by, her goal changed: science journalist became top priority.

In a first internship, she observed the hustle and bustle surrounding the Soccer World Cup 2006 for the BILD local editorial office in Dortmund. During her bachelor studies, she reported on start ups, benchmarks and business angels for Financial Times Deutschland and Impulse. During the mentoring program of the Initiative Wissenschaftsjournalismus she interned at hr2 kultur and P.M. Magazin. Her clients today include, P.M. Magazin, WELT/WELT AM SONNTAG, Der Tagesspiegel, Brigitte, Deutschlandfunk and

Until 2018 Caroline Ring was an editor at the science section of WELT/WELT AM SONNTAG. Before that, she was a project manager at the Museum für Naturkunde, Berlin. In October 2020 her non-fiction debut on city trees „Botschafter des Lebens“ was published at Berlin Verlag/Piper.
