About me

I'm a philosopher and historian of science. My most important guidelines are lifelong learning and mutual respect and esteem for each other. I'm convinced that philosophy and history of science should be (self-)critical, analytical, future-oriented and sustainable in the face of global challenges.  

Research Interests

I'm specialized in the history and philosophy of science, with an emphasis on women’s studies. Currently, I’m working on a monograph about women’s contributions to foundational debates in logic, mathematics and physics in the early twentieth century. For this research (Habilitation project) I have successfully applied for a postdoc-fellowship at Paderborn University, germany. Most recently, I worked as a research assistant at the Center for the History of Women Philosophers and Scientists (HWPS) at Paderborn University, Germany. This project was led by Prof. Dr. Ruth Hagengruber (Paderborn University, Philosophy) and funded by the Ministry of Innovation, Science and Research NRW.
