About me

SUMMARY

— igniting trans-disciplinary interactions, co-creation and production that inspire engagement, learning, and knowledge transfer — building bridges between participants, companies, institutions, organizations, and stakeholders — considering their aims and values —

With over 15 years of experience initiating and directing projects applying scientific knowledge to Communications, services, products, and workshops across Science and Research, Health, Software, (Higher) Education, Art, and Public Engagement sector; I am a highly passionate professional with expertise in project development, production, communications, including team building and leadership.

 

I studied Comparative Religion and Biology (diploma studies) at the University of Bremen. These studies included aspects of Behavioral Biology, Cognitive Science, Neurobiology, Marine Biology, Theory of Religion and Culture, and Theory of Science. They led to a “Degree Equivalent to a Mathematical-Scientific Study,“ and in addition a “Diploma in Comparative Religion.“ I focused on communication in highly evolved mammals, interspecies communication, neurobiology of teaching and learning, and evolution of symbol building, conducting several field studies on Pilot Whales in the Atlantic off the Canary Islands, and writing my interdisciplinary Diploma thesis on ritualization. I have published scientifically in behavioral biology, visualization, art, tech, and science. Trained as a Cognitive Behavioral Coach, I ran my own companies and presently work in Communications at the intersection of R&D and industry. Drawing on the practical implications of my scientific studies, I create interactive and artistic experiences encouraging people to engage meaningfully with science and tech.

The topics of social justice, women and human rights, new concepts for cities, sustainable and bicycle-friendly mobility, environmentally sound building, organic farming, and member shops for organic food with regional suppliers have been constants since my youth.
