Having a background in political sciences and sociology combined with public law, economics, psychology, and education (University of Potsdam/ King’s College London: Diplom Politikwissenschaft), I am working on issues of national and international internet policy today. This includes:
- the history of national and international networking policy,
- its challenge of societal norms, regulations, and structures,
- policy analysis: actors, issues, and trends, and
- policy learning: better and worst practices.
I give special attention to singular issues like content regulation/ manipulation, consumer/ data protection or the use of digital tools for special purposes, overview: Smart Science for Smart Citizens.
Next to research, I do:
- project development and management
- talks, teaching, and workshops
- counseling and advice
