Dr. Dellenbaugh-Losse completed her BSc with honors at the University of New Hampshire in 2006. Funded in part by a two-year German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) scholarship, she relocated to Germany in 2007 to pursue her MA in landscape architecture at the Hochschule Anhalt in Bernburg, which she completed in 2010. In 2013, after three years of independent interdisciplinary research, she successfully defended her doctorate in urban geography at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.
Dr. Dellenbaugh-Losse is an expert for integrated post-industrial urban development, specifically: culture and creative industries, real estate market dynamics, intermediate and adaptive reuse of vacant buildings, bottom-up urban development, and urban commons. She has been validated by the EU program URBACT as a lead expert for these topics and has published widely about them as well. In addition, she has completed independent, in-depth research about the political, symbolic, and normative aspects of architecture and urban planning in both her doctoral and postdoctoral work.
She has lectured at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Freie Universität Berlin, and the Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft and is the author of numerous publications, including the recent monograph Städtewandel durch Kultur. In addition, through positions in academia and the private sector, she has been able to gain extensive experience in EU project management, transnational knowledge transfer, and intercultural communication.
