After having received my degrees (BA and MA) in American Studies and Cultural Studies at Leipzig University, I have started my position as a research associate and PhD candidate at American Studies Leipzig in 2020. My teaching and research is located in the fields of American literary and cultural studies with a special focus on post-45 American literature and culture. Additionally, I regularly teach in a practical skills module ("iCAN") in our MA program. Some of my main service roles are study advising and coordinating the Picador Guest Professorship for Literature. Next to these, I am part of the moderator team of Thomasius-Club, a monthly event to foster science communication.
