Biography

Johannes Lenhard studied Economics and Management at Zeppelin University in Germany, before his postgraduate career at the London School of Economics and then the University of Cambridge focused on various aspects of homesslessness. His PhD asked the question: how do people make a better life on the streets of Paris? At Max-Cam, Johannes acts both as the centre’s research coordinator and continues his own research on inequality and ethics. His postdoctoral project turns to international venture capital investors and investigate the values and ethics behind their efforts of making a better future.
