She studied Protestant Theology, German Studies and Education in Erlangen, Cluj-Napoca and Aberdeen and was a scholarship holder of the Max Weber Program during her studies. For her thesis “Wohltätiger Zwang in der Geburtsmedizin? Sozialanthropologische Untersuchung des Verhältnisses von Anerkennung und Vulnerabilität in der Geburtshilfe in theologisch-ethischer Perspektive” [Benevolent coercion in obstetrics? Social anthropological investigation of the relationship between recognition and vulnerability in obstetrics in a theological-ethical perspective] she received the Ernst Wolf Award 2021 of the Society for Protestant Theology.
Since 2021, she works in the StMGP-funded digiOnko project and the DFG-funded Collaborative Research Center 1483 EmpkinS. In both projects, the use of digital technologies in healthcare is being investigated from an interdisciplinary perspective. In her doctoral thesis she addresses the theological-ethical chances and challenges in dealing with these technologies, especially the use of artificial intelligence. Visibility, vulnerability and intersectionality are central research topics.
