Since 2012, I have studied Catholic theology and German language and literature at the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster. 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 technologies. In the Graduate School “Ethik, Kultur und Bildung für das 21. Jahrhundert” ("Ethics, Culture and Education for the 21st Century") (Hochschule für Philosophie München, Katholische Stiftungshochschule München, Katholische Universität Eichstätt-Ingolstadt), I conducted interdisciplinary research on issues relevant to the future and society in health and care, technology, education, psychology, culture, and sociology. Afterwards, I worked at Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main at the Faculty of Social Ethics on medical ethics and everyday technologies. Together with my colleagues, I founded neth:KI, the Network for Theology and AI.
