Biography

I joined the Department in 2007/08 as a DAAD-Sprachassistent and subsequently was the DAAD-Lektor from 2008/09 to 2012/13. I am currently Lecturer (Education & Scholarship) in German and Language Coordinator for German in the Foreign Language Centre. I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and hold a University of Exeter ASPIRE Fellowship.

Originally, I am from south-west 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 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 Tsinghua University in Beijing in 2012. I also organised DAAD-funded study trips to Germany and organised cultural events, such as panel discussions and film screenings on a range of cultural topics.
