In February 2016 she completed the dual-subject Bachelor in Cultural and Social Anthropology and Geography at the same university. In her Bachelor thesis she dealt with the topic "Indigeneity as political instrument: Identity strategies of the Himba in northern Namibia since 1990". Following the Bachelor thesis, Teresa conducted a 2-month fieldwork in Opuwo/Namibia which was coordinated by the Department of Cultural and Social Anthropology of the University of Cologne in collaboration with UNAM – University of Namibia. In her research she put the focus on the current debate on the planning of a hydropower scheme in the Baynes Mountains at the Kunene, the border river to Angola and its impacts. The aim was to capture the divergence of interest, i.e. the current situation in the controversy about the construction of the Orokawe-dam.
