Personal profile


I studied philosophy, German studies and Catholic theology in Münster and Munich, Germany. I completed my philosophical doctorate in the anthropology of transhumanism and the ethics of future technologies at the Munich School of Philosophy in 2021 with a scholarship from the Hanns Seidel Foundation. In my dissertation, I have examined how the understanding of the human being and the body changes with the use of technologies. In the Graduate School “Ethik, Kultur und Bildung für das 21. Jahrhundert” ("Ethics, Culture and Education for the 21st Century") (Hochschule für Philosophie München, Katholische Stiftungshochschule München, Katholische Universität Eichstätt-Ingolstadt), I conducted interdisciplinary research on issues relevant to the future and society in health and care, technology, education, psychology, culture, and sociology. fter working in various cities such as Münster, Munich, Frankfurt am Main, Vienna, and Oxford, I am currently based at the University of Twente, working within the ESDiT Research Programme (Ethics of Socially Disruptive Technologies).
