About Me

I studied Sociology in Marburg and Eichstätt with a focus on empirical social research. Driven by the desire to comprehend society through metrics, I started off my career as a fellow in market research for international public transport companies. My scientific interest paired with my passion for writing consequently led me to the field of professional communication. As trained PR consultant I worked amongst others for a PR consulting house with a strong focus on health communication.

At GHGA I support the outreach activities with an emphasis on patient communication, aiming to raise the awareness for the opportunities of genomic research.
