Brigitte Schönberger studied agricultural biology with a specialization in agricultural biotechnology at the University of Hohenheim. In 2016, she completed her PhD in epigenetics at the Institute of Crop Sciences at the University of Hohenheim. Afterwards, she spent two years as a PostDoc in the 'Computational Biology' group at the Institute of Biochemical Engineering at the University of Stuttgart. During this time, she began to complete further training to obtain the Baden-Württemberg university didactics certificate. In the process, she decided to make a lateral move into educational sciences.
