I support Prof. Dr. Sharon Macdonald as a student assistant in the areas of organization, communication and teaching.

As a graduate student at the Institute of European Ethnology, my research interests include sites and spaces of memory, practices and acts of institutional reckoning with the (post)colonial, as well as collaborative curation and the politics of exhibiting.
In the field of museums and heritage sites, I am particularly interested in the (de)constructions of heritage, nation and collective memories.
Moreover, I am engaged and interested in the pedagogical mediation and education within museums and museum-like places.
