Niklas Ellerich-Groppe studied Social Work (B.A.) and Educational Science (M.A.) as well as Protestant Theology. 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 associate in the Division for Ethics in Medicine since September 2019.

His research interests lie in the area of digitalization of healthcare. Furthermore, he works on diversity in healthcare as well as the concept of solidarity as (bio)ethical and moralphilosophical category. Throughout his work, he pursues an interdisciplinary approach and combines social science, philosophical and theological perspectives with methods of empirical social research. Here, he focuses especially on qualitative research methods and on interview research as well as discourse analysis in particular. Beside his PhD-project, he is particularly involved in the PRISMAE-project and the DiAStereo-project.
