I have been teaching photography and time-based media at different art colleges, academies and universities since 2005. From 2014-2018 I worked as an academic
assistant to Prof. Andreas Kleinert and Prof. Barbara Albert at the Filmuniversity Potsdam-Babelsberg.
Important to me are topics on future image production processes in the digital transformation and design possibilities of transformation processes, such as the generation of electricity through photovoltaics in projections in public space, and to develop projects on this with the students. Changing perspectives in context, attitude and position are important to me in my teaching. My work is constructivist, intersubjective, involving and activating. Open and equal exchange are the basis of my teaching. Teaching students to accept and weigh different opinions without losing their own attitude and position is what makes up my understanding of teaching photography in art and design. It is important to me that students develop an individual visual language with their own stance, become socially and politically involved as artists' personalities and are also able to contextualise themselves in an expanded concept of photography. In particular, as a lecturer at an university, I hope to be able to help shape a diversity- and gender-sensitive space.

Interfaces of art, design and sciences interest me from my studies of artistic research at the Art University Linz, which I completed 2019 with a Ph.D. In artistic and design based research I work artistically on the topic of light in space. Thematic areas that appeal to me in artistic and design based research are transnational to urban research and urban development, Social Design and Design Thinking. In addition, interdisciplinary work with other disciplines gives me great pleasure. In particular, I would be interested in research collaboration with institutes on comparative studies related to machine learning versus human learning. In this respect, it is a particular concern for me to think about the impact of digitalization on society and reflect upon Digital Divide and Digital Literacy, take a position regarding climate policy, sustainability, digitalization, and equality.
