About Me

DIVERSITY LEAD @ TUM

PhD in GENDER STUDIES in ENGINEERING & SCIENCE

SPEAKER on BIASED AI

In my position as Head of Staff Unit Diversity & Equal Opportunities, I consult the Executive Vice President for Talent Management and Diversity, Prof. Dr. Claudia Peus, in strategic activities to advance the Technical University of Munich to an even more diverse and inclusive university and workplace. 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. Next to my research interest in the mutual influence of technology and society with regards to women, I am passionate about biased Artificial Intelligence and give presentations on the discriminatory factors of AI to audiences in corporate, higher education and civil society organizations. In my weekly newsletter, I share recent media publications on various diversity dimensions. I organize a regular women's networking event in Munich titled Female Salon.

BIASES IN ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

GENDER x TECHNOLOGY

DIVERSITY MANAGEMENT

I give presentations on biases in and through Artificial Intelligence, i.e. on how algorithms and AI can digitally reproduce social structures with potentially disadvantageous effects on minorities. Here, I explain how such discrimination affects, amongst others, primarily women and people of color. Next to my knowledge of unethical AI, I speak about my expertise in the intersection of gender and technology: How do gendered technology stereotypes not only influence our understanding of technology but also our perception of  concepts such as science, innovation, leadership and status? Apart from that, I am eager to share my experience in diversity management in corporate and academic settings, getting in touch with other experts to exchange best practices.

GENDER STUDIES

BEHAVIORAL SCIENCE

QUALITATIVE RESEARCH

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.
