After completing a B.A. in History in Mannheim (Germany) and a M.A. in Museum Studies in Oldenburg (Germany) I wanted to gain some international research experience. Lo and behold I got a PhD scholarship in New Zealand. It took a while, but in 2016 I left with a mortarboard. 

My research  interests are the representation of immigration in museums, the representation of pre-modern military history in military history museums and digitization strategies for tertiary education.

Right now I work in two digitization projects: Qualität Plus and Uni Action. Both aim to improve digital literacy among students.
