My research is focused on anglophone literatures and culture of the late 16th into the early 19th century, with a specialisation on literature in its cultural and historical contexts and gender studies. I graduated with an M.A. in Anglophone Literatures, Cultures and Media from Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main in 2020, where I previously also completed my B.A. in German and English Studies. My M.A. thesis, researching the courtship novels of the late 18th to early 19th century, was awarded the Dagmar Westberg-Universitätspreis.
While working on my PhD dissertation, I also worked as an external lecturer at Goethe University Frankfurt a.M.
