She also analyzed the impacts of global change on drinking water supply as a member of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)-funded research consortium GLOWA-Danube and assumed teaching responsibilities for the international MSc program Water Resources Engineering and Management (WAREM). Darla Nickel studied environmental engineering at the TU Berlin with a focus on water management, water pollution control, and soil protection. She held a scholarship from the Airlift Gratitude Foundation.
