I am a PhD student at the Center for Technology and Society - part of the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies on Culture (KULT).
My PhD project about non-knowledge and ignorance in (political) decision-making processes regarding the societal introduction of software, is part of the RCN-funded Research Project Risk in the information society: towards epistemic justice, led by Govert Valkenburg, that will be conducted until 2024.
I received my Master's Degree in Sociology (with a strong focus on qualitative inquiry and methodology) from the Institute for Sociology at Tübingen University in 2019. For my Mater's thesis, I conducted research on reminding everyday tasks, especially focussing on practices and artefacts. In 2019 and 2020 I was part of Tübingen University's Methods center and created teaching and learning Material for qualitative research methods. Furthermore, I taught the use of CAQDA software regarding the use of qualitative Inquiry (specifically Grounded Theory (Corbin&Strauss), Situational Analysis (Clarke) and Ethnography).
My research interests lie in:
- Sociology and other studies of knowledge and non-knowledge
- Technology studies
- intersections between poststructuralism, pragmatism and practice-theories
- Qualitative research methods and methodology
- studying the nonexistent, immaterial
