In her master's thesis she explored the question to what impact media can have on a person's daily life and how they can help them cope with profound crises in their lives.

In this context, she is part of the team for the continuation of the large-scale project and leads their courses for graduates and PhD's to raise awareness of the -preneurship topic in the field of science. She also has responsibility for the BioTech and MedTech topics.

In her spare time she is involved in various voluntary activities in the fields of health and medicine (neurodiversity, premature and high-risk children, COVID-19) and the promotion of pupils in mathematics, science and technology (STEM).
