After studying Political Science at University of Mannheim, they obtained a M.A. in Human Geography with a focus on Economic Geography at Goethe University Frankfurt.
Their research interest concerns biotechnologies/-economies with a particular focus on governmental regulation of human behavior. In this context new forms of subjectivity and their mediation through digital technologies are of particular interest to them. Thus, their research is located at the interface between Economic Geography, Science and Technology Studies and Media Studies. On a theoretical and methodological level, their approach derives from the works of Michel Foucault as well as the interpretation of Marx by Critical Theory, in particular Moishe Postone.
