About the author

Alisa Wilken

Alisa Wilken obtained a Bachelor’s degree in technical journalism and public relations from the Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg. This was a course of study that, among those who do not know her, caused many questioning faces. The answer is obvious - it is about explaining technical topics in an easy-to-understand manner. After undertaking several internships in radio and television, Alisa found herself in the Corporate Communications Department at DLR again and has not left since.

As a student assistant in 2011, she assisted with the transition to the new web portal and supported the cross-media team in the online newsroom. After obtaining her Bachelor’s degree, she added a Master’s degree in technology and innovation communication, expanding her skills for communicating technical issues for businesses. Since graduating, Alisa works as an online editor for DLR, contributing to the social media channels and the maintenance of the web portal. In 2014, she managed the project to transition all the blogs to a new design.

Die Website passt sich automatisch an die Breite des jeweiligen Gerätes an und bietet dabei immer den größtmöglichen Lesekomfort, ohne dass Leser dabei auf Inhalte und Funktionen verzichten müssen. read more
