I am a PhD researcher in the DFG research group “CORE – Critical Online Reasoning in Higher Education” (DFG FOR 5404), in Prof. Dr. Mita Banerjee’s project B06 on “The Role of the Narrative Framing and Latent Meaning Structures of Online Information Used by Medical and Economics Students in Their Generic and Domain-Specific Critical Online Reasoning”.  

In 2024, I completed JGU’s high potential doctoral research training group “DIAPASON: Digital Information Landscape and its Impact on Students’ Online Learning”.

I received both my B.Ed. and M.Ed. in English and Philosophy from JGU Mainz and wrote my theses on hermeneutics in the second language acquisition context and the intersections between video games and trauma respectively. Over the course of my studies, I took part in the Obama Institute’s Direct Exchange Program to Georgia State University, Atlanta, GA, USA, and the ERASMUS teaching program GET Across Borders to Paisley, Scotland, UK. 

During my doctoral research phase, I also participated in Harvard University’s annual Institute for World Literature, held in 2022 at Johannes Gutenberg-University and in 2023 at Harvard University.  In 2017, I was awarded the Hans Galinsky Memorial Prize for best student term paper on “Judith Sargent Murray’s Conception of Genderless Spirituality in her Essay ‘On the Equality of the Sexes’ (1790) and its Argumentative Consequences for the Religious, Educational and Social Equality of Men and Women and the Female Role in Particular”.

In my research, I primarily focus on interdisciplinary approaches to video game studies, medical humanities and narrative medicine, gender/queer studies, and education studies in both qualitative and quantitative projects.
