Biography

I joined the Department in the academic year 2007/08 as a DAAD-Sprachassistent and subsequently was the DAAD-Lektor from 2008/09 to 2012/13. I am currently a Lecturer (Education & Scholarship) in German and Language Coordinator for German in the Foreign Language Centre.

Originally, I am from the south-west of Germany where I studied English, Film Studies and Foreign-Language Adult Education at the University of Trier, Germany, with a study abroad period at the University of Stirling. Being interested in (and a firm believer of) international exchanges, I also attended summer schools in Nancy, Tallinn and Vienna, did a work placement in Ontario, Canada, and was a guest teacher in the English language summer camp of our partner university Tsinghua University in Beijing in 2012.

Apart from my teaching and administration-related activities at the university, I have organised study trips for students to Germany and organised cultural events on the anniversary of German Reunification and the European Crisis.
I am also a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and hold a University of Exeter ASPIRE Fellowship.
