Personal homepage with further information


I studied musicology, Italian studies, and choral conducting in Hamburg, Rome, and Berlin, and earned my PhD in 2018 with a dissertation on 19th-century music criticism at the University of Würzburg. Most recently, I coordinated the Digital Editions department at the Centre for Philology and Digitality there. In 2021/22, I served as a substitute professor for Digital Humanities at the University of Wuppertal. Prior to that, I worked as a research fellow focusing on Digital Humanities at the Leopoldina Centre for Science Studies, as a team member in the academy project Richard Wagner Schriften (Richard Wagner's writings), and on several research projects at the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities. My research interests include newspapers and magazines, hybridity, and born digital heritage.
