Niklas Ellerich-Groppe M.A.
Niklas Ellerich-Groppe studied Social Work (B.A.) at the Catholic University of Applied Sciences in Münster and Educational Science (M.A.) at Osnabrück University. After student assistant positions at the Institute for Educational Science at the University of Osnabrück and at the Institute for Ethics and Associated Social Sciences at the University of Münster as well as a position as associate lecturer at the University of Osnabrück, he has been working as a research assistant in the Division for Ethics in Medicine since September 2019.
His research interests comprise the social-theoretical positioning of medical-ethical questions, social philosophy and the ethics of the welfare state. He is particularly interested in questions of justice theory and ethics in connection with digitalisation. Further foci of his scientific work are heterogeneity in the healthcare system, ethics in social work, and the philosophy of education. Throughout his work, he pursues an interdisciplinary approach and combines social science, philosophical and theological perspectives. His empirical research focuses on qualitative research methods and on interview research in particular.
In addition to his work as a research assistant in the Division for Ethics in Medicine, he is also continuing his second degree in Protestant Theology at the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster.
