 "Citizen science and science communication are contemporary approaches for me to integrate the diverse voices, varied ideas, and creative approaches of citizens into research. Simultaneously, we make science accessible and tangible for all, contributing to a democratic and sustainable knowledge society." 

Since completing my Ph.D. in Communication and Media Studies at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf with the thesis "Jugendliche und Politik - zwischen Like-Button und Parteibuch” (Youth and Politics - Between the Like Button and Party Membership) in 2015, I have been working as a freelance speaker, trainer, and consultant. My thematic focal points include digital and political participation, digital education and competencies, as well as citizen science and science communication. In addition to SCI:MOVE, I am a Research Associate at the FZI Research Center for Information Technology in Berlin, where I do research on digital democracy and digital citizen science. 


From 2019 to 2022, I conducted research on participation and citizen science at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf. Prior to that (2017 to 2018), I was the Department Head for Vocational Education and Digital Education at the Volkshochschule Köln. Between 2007 and 2012, I worked as a Research Associate in the field of Media Economics at Hochschule Fresenius Köln.
