PhD Student at the Transtechnology Institute and research fellow in the CogNovo programme.

So far my interests are within the fields of media archaeology and variantology, philosophy and history of science and physiological experimenting.

Within my PhD I try explore various fields related to instrumentation of human affection and further the subject/object relationship within media practice. Especially, in defining “intimacy” as an instrument, I aim to expand the mainly psychological definitions of the term and analysing its mediative function.

A huge part of my educational background is in Communication and Media Studies with some intellectual excursions in studying Law, Art History, German-Jewish poetry. My master thesis dealt with relationships between the anthropological concepts of “the self” and its visualisations in philosophical, medical, scientific and artistic fields. After graduating at the University of Arts in Berlin I also studied at the European Graduate School in Saas-Fee.
