About Me




My work revolves around the intersections of diversity, discrimination and digitalization (>ddd<): in my position as Chief of Staff and diversity lead for the Senior Vice President for Talent Management & Diversity at the European Union's no.1 academic institution, the Technical University of Munich (TUM), I implement strategic activities to advance TUM to an even more diverse and inclusive university and workplace. Through my public speaking engagements and my newsletter, I see myself as an advocate for raising awareness on the social implications at the intersections of >ddd<, with a focus on Artificial Intelligence. I completed my PhD in Gender Studies in Engineering & Science at the TUM during which I was a visiting scholar at UC Berkeley in the USA.

An argumentation for technology as a new intersectional category and as a representation of power





Through my research, I became interested in the reciprocal influence of technology and society. I learned to understand the ways digital technology is connected to the power dynamics that traditionally exist in hierarchical societal structures. How are digital technologies shaping a society and the individuals positioning themselves within that society? In my PhD thesis, I analyzed the intersection of gender and age with technology to understand the perception and impact of gendered technology stereotypes, especially by and for women. I provide evidence on technology’s role in the judgement of individuals by each other, which in turn can impact someone’s positioning within society – on educational, professional or social level.
