Research profiles

I studied philosophy, German language and literature, and Catholic Theology in M√ľnster and Munich. I completed my philosophical doctorate in the anthropology of transhumanism and the ethics of future technologies at the Munich School of Philosophy in 2021 with a scholarship from the Hanns Seidel Foundation. In my dissertation, I have examined how the understanding of the human being and the body changes with the use of new technologies.¬†In the Graduate School ("Promotionskolleg") ‚ÄúEthik, Kultur und Bildung f√ľr das 21. Jahrhundert‚ÄĚ ("Ethics, Culture and Education for the 21st Century") in Munich, I conducted interdisciplinary research on issues relevant to the future and society in health and care, technology, education, psychology, culture, and sociology.¬†Together with my colleagues, I founded neth:KI, the Network for Theology and AI. Afterwards, I worked at Goethe University in Frankfurt, University of Vienna and Oxford University.¬†
