MA Medicine, Science and Technology Studies (MSTS)


I am a master‘s student in Science and Technology Studies (STS) at the Goethe University Frankfurt and the University of California Irvine. I received my BA in Media, Communication and Cultural Studies from the University of Bremen, Germany in 2017. I am a fellow of the German National Academic Foundation (SDV) and the German-American Fulbright Foundation.

My research focuses on data and knowledge infrastructures, hacker culture, critical studies of migration and humanitarianism, as well as anthropocenic risks. In 2017, my an ethnographic study of free wireless network activism in German refugee shelters received the DARIAH-DE DH Award for emerging scholars in the digital humanities.
