Based on work in  ELSA (ethical,legal and social aspects) Research of Genomics, lately my research has additionaly focused on Gender- identity, -roles, -balance, – in educational settings, -diversity. Furthermore my media education has broadened my research focus towards Science-to-Public communication, particularly on publishing research results and raising awareness for eg. on youths use of new technological tools in various (social) media channels. Methodology in Gender- and Media- research has been a common thread throughout my past research and lecture activities.

Bielefeld University

Since February 2015 I have been working as a research assistant and doctoral student in the work group ‘Applied Social Psychology and Gender Research’ at the Cluster of Excellence – Cognitive Interaction Technology of the Bielefeld University, where I am researching into sexual objectification. Prior to that I worked as a research assistant in social psychology at the Karl-Franzens-University Graz (Austria). At that time, one of the research topics I focused on was the relationship between sexism and system-justification. After a two-months research visit at the Brown University (USA) I finished my Diploma Studies in psychology at the University of Graz in March 2014. I have been a member of the scientific workgroup Queer STS October 2011.
