I am a team worker, performing in, and organising, collaborative teaching and research within the Institute of Cultural Anthropology and European Ethnology's team at Frankfurt University (since 2023). 2019 to 2023 I co-led the research project Sociocultural Carbon. For several years I have been involved in the DataNatures team at the Museum of Natural History Berlin, the TiP research group at IT University of Copenhagen and the Chair of Technoscience Studies at Brandenburg University of Technology.
Since the early 2000s, I have been leading several early career researcher teams, including the international doctoral/postdoc ‘Environment, Management and Society Research Group’, drawing into these teams multiple awards, grants and producing publications.
Across the teams and my or our grants, my responsibilities included project management, drafting and administrating budgets, subcontractor management, planning and managing the logistics of ethnographic fieldwork on two continents, coordinating scheduled delivery of research output to funders, supervising PhD students and intellectually guiding PostDocs as well as evaluating progress. In leading teams, I explore modes of collaborative relations and building nurturing environments, drawing on my training in listening and noticing to guide open development.
