Research Assistant in the coordinating project (sub-project 0)
Institute for European Ethnology, Humboldt-University Berlin

I am a cultural anthropologist trained in cultural studies (M.A., Goldsmiths, University of London), gender studies, and linguistics (B.A., HU Berlin), currently working as the coordinator of the Research Unit. My Ph.D. research, which I aim to finalize in 2022, focused on homosexuality in the far right, and consisted of two years of ethnographic fieldwork in the right-wing populist party “Alternative for Germany”.

In my research, I want to understand how and why conflict emerges, and how processes of polarization are played out in the fields of gender, sexuality, race, and ethnicity. As an anthropologist, I am always eager to get to know the ways in which these interrelated phenomena are experienced in people's everyday life, and how they shape the way people make sense of themselves, others, and the world they inhabit.
