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 German Fulbright Fellow at the University of California Irvine. I received my BA in Media, Communication and Cultural Studies from the University of Bremen in 2017. In Fall 2019, I am entering the PhD in Cultural Anthropology at University of California Irvine.

My research focuses on data and knowledge infrastructures, crisis management and environmental advocacy. In 2017, my ethnographic study of free wireless network activism in German refugee shelters received the DARIAH-DE DH Award for emerging scholars in the digital humanities. I currently work on civic data infrastructure in response to "the Anthropocene" expansively conceived. I also contribute to the design of the Platform for Collaborative Experimental Ethnography (PECE).
