Changing perspectives and a variety of roles in my daily routines are enabling me to tackle wicked problems, but also allow me to deep dive in scientific contexts. Life long learning for me is a principle of designing and a fundamental impetus. Please, take a look at my LinkedIn profile for a more detailed CV.

Research Associate, M.Sc.

TUM

Being part of the researchers team around the professorship of urban design at TUM – Technical University of Munich, is a great opportunity to exploring the life in academia and to setting the scientific aspiration that design has for me. Design education faces huge challenges, while being on its way towards a transdisciplinary working and research field outside disciplinary borders. The combination of different modes of thinking and the principle of a continuous beta-version allows designers to act as change agents in future issues. Thus, in my dissertation project I would like to approach the question of: What kind of knowledge is necessary to leave common path dependencies of so called ‘innovations’? And how might we design socio-technical-systems regarding planetary boundaries?

Co-Founder and Partner

überkochen e.V.

In my studies of the M.Sc. program in industrial design at TUM I had the great chance to develop my own social enterprise together with Constanze Buckenlei. What might design offer for the educational sector? We started with this research question and kept on working on a new and practiced-based way of learning. überkochen e.V. brings cooking into classrooms and combines it with classes for maths, physics, English and so on. In 2018, we got honored as Kultur- und Kreativpiloten by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy. There is still a lot of motivation and work to do in activating students in their interests and enabling them to live the SDGs – Sustainable Development Goals – in their daily lives.
