As a PhD student at IPS, my research primarily focuses on the intersection of heterogeneous water infrastructures, socio-political processes, and power asymmetries. I examine water infrastructures as objects for analyzing social and material relationships, with a particular emphasis on everyday practices and urban governance.
Through the research project "Urban Waterscapes and the Pandemic," I gained valuable field research experience in Nairobi, Kenya. My academic background includes a Bachelor's degree in Geography from the University of Münster and a Master's degree in Spatial Planning from the Technical University of Dortmund.
In addition to my research at IPS, I also look forward to lively interactions with students, whether in my role as thesis advisor or in various projects and seminars.
