About me

ABOUT ME   I am an artistic researcher and a creative consultant. I develop science films and multimedia communication projects for universities and research institutes, next to conducting own research.

I am used to working at the intersection of art, design, science and technology and to lead interdisciplinary teams with different backgrounds from in- and outside academia.

HOW DID I BECOME AN ARTISTIC RESEARCHER? Probably it was my urge for exploration and also my passion for design which led me in this direction. One of the most exciting things about my job is looking at theory and practise together, and letting the two feed into each other.

I also believe that not only art or science, but also science communication has a research element to it and this allows me to develop my own formats, something which I love.

Through my studies I was fortunate to be able to travel and live in a number of different countries. I did my two Masters in Cultural Analysis and Artistic Research in Amsterdam and in addition to my native German I speak fluent English, Spanish and Dutch.

This varied experience has given me a broad cultural overview and different perspectives on many things, which is something I value hugely. In addition, the principle of seeing and experiencing things from different perspectives has become a key part of my approach to my work.
